Futher to this I was looking back through this thread (thinking maybe
about having a look at the data myself) and I James said:

It's described as "These boundaries have been based upon localities
gazetted by the Geographic Place name authority current at the time of
the Census."

So it's always going to be out-of-date anyway and updated every 4
years, it's not going to change often. But it's a much better start
than what we have now :)
