“3 Sisters” renamed for Chinese market

The iconic Three Sisters rock formation in the Blue Mountains is to be renamed “Two Parents One Child Mountain” to appeal to the Chinese tourism market. New South Wales Tourism minister George Souris explained, “If we want to be a part of the booming Chinese tourism market, we can’t be rubbing their one child policy in their faces, simple as that. Even if Chinese parents could have more than one child, three daughters would be regarded as a disaster. It would be like expecting Australians to visit somewhere in China called – I don’t know… “Burnt to Death Koala” or something.”
Indigenous groups have expressed outrage at the move.
