What is included?
Administrative boundary data includes local governments, local government wards, localities (suburbs), townsites, land districts, port authorities, marine parks and reserves, infrastructure corridors, water control areas, state forests, Native Title claims, and State electoral districts and regions.
Further administrative boundaries are to be added, such as rail freight line corridors, marine harbours and ports, and heritage areas. Apart from applying directly to land administration, they also provide a useful tool in identifying potential 'areas of interest' for cadastral data extraction and demographic studies. The data is updated on a daily basis ensuring very reliable datasets.
Administrative boundary data gives you:
- unique ID number
- usage code, which signifies the purpose of the polygon (e.g. locality)
- Australian Bureau of Statistics number (assigned to local areas)
- legal area in square metres.

||Administrative boundaries have extents that are defined under legislative requirements (both State and Federal). Administrative boundaries within the service are linked to the State's Spatial Cadastral Database (SCDB) and therefore carry the same point/line accuracies. This service should not be relied upon for legal purposes instead refer to the original statutory documentation.
