Is there a register of Australian place names?

Gazetteers are an alphabetical list of place names giving feature identification and geographic and/or grid coordinates. There are various gazetteers of Australia available, both online and in paper version.

The Gazetteer of Australia Place name search contains over 310,000 geographic names in Australia provided by members of the Committee for Geographic Names in Australasia. Copyright of the Gazetteer of Australia resides with the relevant State, Territory and Australian governments which are the custodians of the information within their jurisdiction.
