Guide for use:Help on this term

The suburb/town/locality name may be a town, city, suburb or commonly used location name such as a large agricultural property or Aboriginal community.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics has suggested that a maximum field length of 50 characters should be sufficient to record the vast majority of locality names.

This metadata item may be used to describe the location of an organisation. It can be a component of a street or postal address.
