Doo Town on Pirates Bay
|Population||230 (?)|
Located 79 km southeast of Hobart, Doo Town was established in the 1830s as an unnamed timber station which eventually developed into a shack community. In 1935 a Hobart architect, Eric Round, placed the name plate Doo I 99 on his weekend shack. A neighbor, Charles Gibson, responded with a plate reading Doo Me then Bill Eldrige with Doo Us. Eric Round later renamed his shack Xanadoo.
The trend caught on and most of the homes have a plate that includes the name Doo.

In popular culture
In 2004, Off Planet Films made a pilot for a television cartoon series set in and named after the Tasmanian town, the cartoon portrayed a "backwater" town full of dodgy characters, rednecks, aliens, strip-clubs and gratuitous nudity.
