We had a similar confusion in Melbourne when they tried the LGA
restriction approach. No one knew where the boundaries were, even
people who lived there. They know their own postcode, but that's it.
Boundaries are arbitrary and sometimes they change. My address used to
be in Narre Warren years ago, but since I've lived here it's been
Berwick. Same thing happened in the Elsternwich/Brighton/Gardenvale
area not all that long ago.
Regional v metroMelbourne was much easier. But even then, some of the
outer boundary LGAs seemed weird to be included and people who lived
there were not happy, e.g. Mornington Peninsula beyond Frankston, for

On Sunday 20 Dec, at 17:00 for 24:00, the ACT government slapped a
14-day quarantine requirement on people coming to the ACT who've been
"the Greater Sydney, Central Coast or Wollongong areas".
To define what that means, a table lists 35 LGAs in alpha order:
Put your hands up if you know:
- the 29 Sydney Basin LGAs;
- the 6 extra LGAs in "Greater Sydney, Central Coast or
Wollongong areas"; and
- the location-names on either side of the boundaries.
I used to know the 42 Sydney Basin LGAs, but since a partly-abortive
badly-botched amalgamation campaign, some are foreign to me.
(Cumberland was a ridiculous name to use, because for a century 'the
County of Cumberland' encompassed the whole of the Sydney basin).
I also got part of the boundary wrong on this map first time around.
I overlooked Hawkesbury LGA (hence missing Richmond and Windsor):
No map was provided, and that remained the case as late as Wed
23 Dec. This email and attachment took 45 mins, but apparently the
Govt doesn't have the resources, or doesn't think it matters.
(And the ACT Govt provides no email-addresses, and their web-forms
no allowance for attachments. Remember when the Web was going to
greatly improve relations between people and governments? It didn't).
