Administrative Boundaries

PSMA Australia’s Administrative Boundaries dataset provides authoritative government, statistical and electoral boundaries for Australia.


PSMA’s Administrative Boundaries dataset is Australia’s most comprehensive national collection of:

  • government boundaries, incorporating state and territory boundaries, local government areas, suburbs/localities, wards and town points
  • statistical boundaries, incorporating Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) boundaries (2011 & 2016)
  • electoral boundaries.

This dataset contains boundaries in eight themes, with layers of data to support a wide range of analysis and segmentation activities.

What is this dataset used for? 

Administrative Boundaries is used for:

  • Profiling – to build profiles of suburbs and wider areas by combining this data with social, demographic, economic and environmental data.
  • Improved policy and services – to enable organisations to develop more accurate socioeconomic and demographic analysis for policy development and service delivery.
  • Find nearest – to show internet or mobile phone users the nearest provider of a service or retailer.
  • Emergency management – to identify areas under threat and recognising evacuation routes.
