Geographical Names Board NSW
The Board is empowered by the Geographical Names Act 1966 which provides it the power to assign names to places to:
- investigate and determine the form, spelling, meaning, pronunciation, origin and history of any geographical name and
- determine the application of each name with regard to position, extent or other reference.
The Board is committed to providing NSW with the best possible service and is at the forefront of international ‘best practice’ methodologies in the field of toponymy.
