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, still a draft, will post to Talk:Sydney when done

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 based on local government boundaries (I used this map of Outer Sydney for every region except Inner Sydney, this map of Inner Sydney, and this City of Sydney map for the Sydney (city) districts:
