RDA 2015-16

Regional Development Australia 2015-16 (April 2016)

Regional Development Australia (RDA) is an Australian Government initiative that brings together all levels of government to enhance the growth and development of Australia's regions. A national network of RDA committees has been established to achieve this objective.

RDA Regions are created and maintained by the Dept. of Infrastructure and Regional Development to support this initiative.


The RDA Regions (2015-16) were built from the ABS LGA/PSMA 2015 boundary datasets.

The RDA spatial data is updated as new LGA boundaries are released by ABS or as RDA regional boundaries move. Please note that Jervis Bay Territory is included as part of RDA South Coast (NSW) and that RDA boundaries in SA follow SA Government Regions as defined in 2006 (in more remote areas) as well as LGA boundaries.

On the 16th of August 2011, the RDA representation of Lord Howe Island, previously RDA Northern Rivers was changed to RDA Mid North Coast. The 2011 dataset was updated to reflect this change.
