Only bit I can see is at the bottom of the fact sheet. "1259.0.30.002_product brief.pdf".

Information regarding the underlying concepts of the Australian Standard Geographical 
Classification and its Structures may be found in the ABS publication Catalogue No. 1216.0. 
A publication is produced for each edition of the ASGC and the publication for the ASGC 
Edition 2006 will be available in the middle of July 2006. The ABS Web site 
(www.abs.gov.au) is a useful reference to view certain editions of the publication.
