Xantippe, WA

Australia's only place name beginning with "X" is found near Dalwallinu in the WA wheat belt, and got its name from workers on the rabbit-proof fence. On discovering that the granite ground they were working on was almost impenetrable, they called the place Xantippe, after the wife of Greek philosopher Socrates, reputedly a very hard woman!

Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, located in Northern Territory of Australia near the center of the country.

One of the park's main features is Ayers Rock, a world-renowned sandstone monolith which stands 348 meters. That's a big rock.

Anything Australia only, please.

@JesusIsTops - Australia does not have provinces. Queensland is a state, one of six in Australia: New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria and Western Australia. The only non-state, Northern Territory is self explanatory.
