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.

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

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) has suggested that a maximum field length of 50 characters is sufficient to record the vast majority of locality names.
