Museums in region:


Administratively, New South Wales is subdivided into 141 counties and further into 7,459 parishes. The counties have been the same since the nineteenth century.

Note: the local government areas of New South Wales (128 in September 2016) are either Municipalities (predominantly inner-city suburban areas and smaller rural towns) or Shires (predominantly rural or outer suburban areas). They have been subject to periodic bouts of restructuring, and are not used on Mindat.

Some areas designated since the Local Government Act 1993 (NSW) have adopted the title "Region", usually large rural areas dominated by a rural city. Many councils now choose not to use any area title and simply refer to themselves as councils, e.g. Central Coast Council, Burwood Council.

In Australia, the State is generally referred to by its initials: NSW (or N.S.W.). The coordinates for NSW are for the Post Office in Sydney.
