Town about an hour outside Melbourne, Victoria in Australia. Also known as Gizzy/Gissy/G-town. Gisborne has a population of around 7,000 and 6 different hairdressing businesses. It also has a kickarse fountain.
Inhabitants often have sense of Gisborne's superiority to surrounding townships, particularly Romsey, Lancefield, Sunbury and Woodend. Justification of this superiority is debatable.
Sally: "Hey John, are you going to the gig in Romsey this weekend?"
John "Pfft. No way. Romsey's a hole. At least Gisborne has a train station!"
