The figures below 50,000 inhabitants shown in the column under the year 1971 are in some cases from 1968 when the source "WG" was used.
In the column of the year 1986 most figures are for the cities or towns; some figures, however, are for a greater area: the shires.
In recent times Australian towns are sometimes combined to form new urban areas with new names.
