Contributor's comments: [Melbourne informant] I have also heard the term "Box of dreams" in referring to cask wine.

Contributor's comments: Even though I've been in the NT for several years, this term was widely used in North Queensland where I grew up. I find that a lot of Territorian's tend to also use 'Lady in the Boat' for cheap cask wine due to having a picture of a lady sitting in a boat on the box.

Contributor's comments: In Perth is also called a box monster or a headache bag.
