Ok, if districts are really meant to be neighbourhoods rather than suburbs or collections of suburbs, maybe we should think about re-doing Sydney as a region. Note that this proposal means a heap of work even to put stubs in for all the pages, but it means we can focus on the major ones for tourists like [[Sydney (city)]] and the beach areas
+
 
+
Initial proposal:
+
 
+
*[[Sydney]] or possibly [[Sydney (metropolitan)]] or [[Sydney (region)]]: a '''region''' page for the '''Sydney metropolitan area''' extending from the Royal National Park in the south, to the foot of the mountains in the west to Berowra in the north. People would also link to this page when they talk about "Sydney the captial city of New South Wales" or whatever. I slightly prefer just plain [[Sydney]] for this, because that's what most people call it, the use of "Sydney" to refer '''just''' to Inner Sydney or the munipality is rather specialised and travellers won't use it.
+
**[[Inner Sydney]]: a '''region''' page for the areas of Sydney nearest to the center linking to the following '''city''' pages (small/big/huge depends), use [http://www.dlg.nsw.gov.au/dlg/dlghome/dlg_Regions.asp?region=SI&regiontype=1 map]:
+
***[[Sydney (city)]], a '''city''' page referring to the City of Sydney [http://www.cityofsydney.nsw.gov.au/] municipality with the following '''districts ''' assuming we have the data (see [http://www.cityofsydney.nsw.gov.au/boundary/map/default.html map]):
+
****[[Sydney (city)/CBD]]: Central business '''district''', skyscraper-ville, extending east into the botanical gardens and the Domain -- this is the suburb that is ''also'' called "Sydney"
+
****[[Sydney (city)/Circular Quay]]: south of the harbour '''district''' including the Opera House
+
****[[Sydney (city)/The Rocks]]: historical '''district'''
+
****[[Sydney (city)/West]]: a '''district''' just rolled into the local area, covering Glebe, Forest Lodge, Chippendale -- anyone got a better name for this?
+
****[[Sydney (city)/Haymarket]]: the Chinatown '''district'''
+
****[[Sydney (city)/Darling Harbour]]: covering Darling Harbour/Pyrmont
+
****[[Sydney (city)/Ultimo]]:  covering the Ultimo/Chippendale area
+
****[[Sydney (city)/Darlinghurst]]
+
****[[Sydney (city)/Woolloomooloo]]: covering Potts Point and Elizabeth Bay
+
***[[North Sydney]] referring to the area covered by the North Sydney council [http://www.northsydney.nsw.gov.au]
+
***[[Mosman]] '''city''' page
+
***[[Manly]] '''city''' page
+
***[[Willoughby]] '''city''' page: it's unfortunately they use that name, this area is far better known as the '''Lower North Shore'''
+
***[[Lane Cove]] '''city''' page
+
***[[Woollahra]] '''city''' page
+
***[[Waverly]] '''city''' page
+
****[[Waverly/Bondi]] '''district''' page almost for sure
+
***[[Randwick]] '''city''' page
+
***[[Botany Bay]] '''city''' page
+
***[[Leichhardt]] '''city''' page
+
****[[Leichhardt/Balmain]] '''district''' page if we can get the info
+
***[[Marrackville]] '''city''' page
+
****[[Marrackville/Newtown]] '''district''' page if we can get the info
+
***[[Ashfield]] '''city''' page
+
***[[Canada Bay]] '''city''' page
+
***[[Burwood]] '''city''' page
+
***[[Strathfield]] '''city''' page
+
***[[Canterbury]] '''city''' page
+
***[[Rockdale]] '''city''' page
+
***[[Hurstville]] '''city''' page
+
***[[Kogarah]] '''city''' page
