Product Version



Localities is a spatial representation of suburbs (urban) and localities (rural) defined by the State and Territory governments of Australia. They represent distinct communities across the country. Localities aggregates the representations unique to each jurisdiction into a consistent, seamless representation of suburb and locality boundaries across Australia. Localities are integral for addressing and postal distribution purposes.

Localities can also be used to identify the creation of new suburbs. Geoscape Australia welcomes your feedback on our Localities product.
