Rename to Outback NSW?[edit]

I didn't really realise this until recently, but it appears that the name "Far West" is quite ambiguous. Sometimes Dubbo, about 300km east of the eastern most point of the Far West region, is sometimes considered to be "Far West" or "Western NSW" but in actual fact, it's in the Central West (New South Wales) (according to ABC news). It appears that the name "Far west" is mainly used for health districts, but that's not the actual name of the region when it comes to a travel point of view, where this name is officially called "Outback NSW". From what I remember, the border between South Australia and New South Wales uses "Outback NSW" (I just checked Google Street Trekker for confirmation and not this one). So... instead of using NSW Health district names and use tourism regions? Especially when we're using tourism region borders, but Health District names?

Since there is no support nor opposes, if no one opposes this, I may as well rename this. SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta.wikimedia) 06:58, 10 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
It's been 12 days now, and no opposition. I'll likely be moving this article. SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta.wikimedia) 23:38, 12 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

The poor benighted creatures who are not Australian may not recognize "NSW". Maybe Outback New South Wales might be a better name? Ground Zero (talk) 02:33, 14 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Tai123.123, Ground Zero: Yes Done. Interestingly, I've never seen the NSW tourist districts have NSW being spelled in full as "New South Wales" (so it's Central West NSW, not Central West New South Wales) SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta.wikimedia) 11:46, 14 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
