Local Government In Australia
Local government in Australia
Australia
is the third tier of government in Australia
Australia
administered by the states and territories, which in turn are beneath the federal tier.[1] Local government is not mentioned in the Constitution of Australia
Australia
and two referenda in the 1970s and 1980s to alter the Constitution relating to local government were unsuccessful.[2] Every state government recognises local government in their respective constitutions.[3] Unlike Canada or the United States, there is only one level of local government in each state, with no distinction such as cities and counties. The local governing body is generally referred to as a council, and the territories governed are collectively referred to as "local government areas"; however, terms such as "city" or "shire" also have a geographic interpretation

The Field of Mars Reserve is a protected nature reserve located in the north–western suburbs of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. The 50 Hectare (123.5 acres) reserve is a remnant of bushland situated between the Lane Cove and Parramatta rivers within the suburb of East Ryde and near Gladesville, Hunters Hill and Ryde.Contents1 Features 2 See also 3 References 4 External linksFeatures[edit] The name Field of Mars was given by Governor Phillip, when in January 1792 he granted to two marines the first parcels of land, later expanded to eight parcels in this district.[2] There are a number of theories on the origin of the name, the first is that it was a direct reference to the Roman God of war and the marines' service in the colony. The second theory is that it is named after the Roman Campus Martius, which also has a military connection. The third theory is that it is named after the Champ de Mars in Paris, again with military connections
