Community areas

We have spent a lot of time trying to define the community areas for the purposes of Children’s Guide and in total we’ve come up with 110!

We looked at a lot of population statistics, at tourism and local government areas and at areas divided by natural geographical features. We thought about how far we would travel, with or without kids, to catch up with friends, for a shopping trip or a day out. We tried to understand areas that suburbs or towns aligned themselves with, but we don’t really know every area of Australia and we do welcome feedback.

Below is the list ordered alphabetically by state. Each state has its capital city first, ordered first by the city centre then alphabetically, then the rest of the state sorted alphabetically. We don’t believe that any one area is more or less important than another – every community is unique.

If, over time, we find that we can better define some areas, then some of these may change. For now, we hope we’ve got it right and you’re happy.
