QTC inadvertently stumbles into Cairns vs Townsville debate

KS at Loose Change has a good eye for the amusing and ironic, and has spotted that Queensland Treasury Corporation’s investment guide includes a map identifying Brisbane, the Gold Coast and Cairns, but not Townsville:

Townsville wiped off map!

I’ve previously posted on the amusing debate around whether Cairns or Townsville is the capital of the non-existent State of North Queensland:

I share KS’s surprise that the Cairns Post and Townsville Bulletin haven’t picked this up yet.

    That is hilarious. Townsville residents will not be pleased.

    My favourite was just a few years ago when the Cairns Post ran a front page campaign because Townsville had a big Christmas tree in the CBD which shamed our council into a competitive response. Never again will Cairns be without a big Christmas tree! 🙂
