Local Government Areas is a spatial representation of the administrative divisions that local governments are responsible for across the country. A Local Government Area (LGA) will typically have an elected council as well as a council leader (e.g. mayor, shire president). Local Government Areas aggregates the representations unique to each jurisdiction into a consistent, seamless representation of the LGA boundaries across Australia.
