Oh and on your original question of how nuclear war would affect us - the climactic effects would be worse than the economic IMO.

coastal regions are fine with the exception of darwin

Interesting title considering nothing has really given any other options besides, still relying on aussie government 1980s warning system that still looks like a commodore 64 screen.If first strike in America is emp or massive missile strike i guess our first warning would be no internet?

Oh and i don't believe the targets listed on that are very accurate as first strikes either.

Even if we had them it won't make a difference to the outcome should they be used. The real problem is finding out in time if others are using thiers.

Very generally speaking, any military, government, or economic area is a target. Cities over 100,000 population are thought to be targeted, but that is for an all-out attack. Targeted or limited attacks likely would not hit those solely for population. If they have other assets, then they would be.

My list is assets only not population though one question comes to mind. Garden island, bp refinery and fremantle port are all within a 30 km radius,and only 20 kilometres up wind of capital city. Would it be necessary to strike the first three mentioned individually?Or would one be enough to destroy those infrastructures as it is only water between the three?
