The other Australian State collectives, 

Queensland - Banana Bender (reference to the best known crop)
Western Australia - Sand Groper (mainly desert)
South Australia - Crow Eater (a reference to the State flag which features a crow - or possibly a magpie now that I think about it)
Northern Territory - Territorian
New South Wales - Whaler (now used only as a type of horse)
Victoria - Cabbage Patcher (probably never used)
