Local Government in Australia

Up to the present time, no systematic attempt has been made to investigate the various systems of Local Government in all the Australian States. As it is desired, if possible, to utilize the municipal subdivision of the States as a basis for the presentation of data in connexion with the next census, it has been considered advisable to undertake a fairly exhaustive examination of the systems at present in force. At the same time, the development of Local Government in Australia has been traced from its inception, and all available statistical information collected.
