Cityrail Anagram Map

Saw this Cityrail anagram map in one of boingboing’s recent spate of anagram map postings, and thought it would be amusing to fellow Sydneysiders. It appears that making English anagrams from aboriginal place names is quite difficult.

The station pictured is Bexley North, a.k.a. Xylene Throb.
