To approximate Australian highways with slime mould Physarum Polycephalum we place oat flakes in the positions of 25 major urban areas:
1. Sydney , Newcastle, Central Coast, Wollongong, Maitland, Nowra-Bomaderry, Richmond-Windsor (New South Wales)
2. Melbourne, Geelong, Ballarat, Melton, Bendigo, Sunbury, Shepparton-Mooroopna (Victoria)
3. Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Toowoomba, Gold Coast-Tweed Heads (Queensland/New South Wales)
4. Perth, Rockingham, Mandurah (Western Australia)
5. Adelaide (South Australia)
6. Bundaberg, Hervey Bay (Queensland)
7. Canberra-Queanbeyan (Australian Capital Territory)
8. Townsville-Thuringowa (Queensland)
9. Cairns (Queensland)
10. Mildura (Victoria)
11. Mackay (Queensland)
12. Darwin, Palmerston (Northern Territory)
13. Bunbury, Albany (Western Australia)
14. Port Macquarie, Lismore, Coffs Harbour (New South Wales)
15. Dubbo, Tamworth (New South Wales)
16. Port Augusta (South Australia) [INCLUDED ONLY FOR COMPLETENESS]
17. Warrnambool (Victoria) and Mount Gambier (South Australia)
18. Gladstone, Rockhampton (Queensland)
19. Kalgoorlie-Boulder (Western Australia)
20. Geraldton (Western Australia)
21. Alice Springs [INCLUDED ONLY FOR COMPLETENESS]
22. Mount Isa, Cloncurry (Queensland) [INCLUDED ONLY FOR COMPLETENESS]
23. Broken Hill (New South Wales) [INCLUDED ONLY FOR COMPLETENESS]
24. South Hedland (Western Australia) [INCLUDED ONLY FOR COMPLETENESS]
25. Albury-Wodonga (New South Wales/Victoria) and Wagga Wagga (New South Wales)

Slime mould is inoculated in Sydney. Slime mould propagates and spans the oat flakes with protoplasmic tubes. The protoplasmic tubes represent positions of mototways as they should be from slime mould's point of view.
