Brisbane (the city) is split into two graticules by a longitude line just west of the city centre.
The eastern graticule at -27,153 is called Brisbane. The western graticule is inland at -27,152 and called Ipswich.
This graticule contains the city center and densest population areas of Brisbane. However the graticule is also approximately 75% ocean, and 5% islands that are not easily accessible (especially on short notice). This leaves the graticule with only 20% viable area on short notice.
This graticule contains the outer suburbs west of Brisbane, as well as Ipswich, Mount Glorious, and alot of empty space on the way (but not quite all the way) to Toowoomba.

Geohashing has a social aspect outside JUST the hashpoint meetups.
- If Saturday night is games night, what games do we all play?
- Table top or otherwise.
Cranium or Articulate, says I! (Joel) Or Werewolf/Mafia?! I'd be up for a meetup as soon as it's meetupable!
We could invent our own games even! (not without precedent: Geohash Card Game)
