Outside the GCCSAs, across regional Australia the Original CFERs tend to focus largely on the larger regional cities and towns and encompass surrounding hinterland areas that may include a number of smaller urban centres, with the shape of those CFERs tending to be elongated (linear) along major transport routes.
But within and around the GCCSAs there is not a lot of difference.
Beyond the areas within and surrounding the GCCSAs the Skilled CFERs tend to take on somewhat similar forms to the previously-discussed original and Male and Female CFERs, except that there are a slightly larger number of them compared to the Male CFERs but fewer than the Female CFERS.
The Less Skilled CFERs are also more numerous in and around the GCCSAs. There are 14 across the Sydney-Newcastle-Wollongong areas; 12 in and around Melbourne-Geelong; 7 across the Brisbane-SEQ region; 3 across the Adelaide area; and 6 across the Perth area.
Beyond the GCCSAs and their surrounds into regional Australia the Less Skilled CFERS are considerably more numerous than is the case for the Skilled CFERs.
For the GCCSAs, we see in and around Sydney 7 Road JTW CFERs, with another 6 to the north, west and south embracing Newcastle, Wollongong and the Blue Mountains areas.
Figure 8 shows that it is only the largest 5 of the GCCSAs with commuter rail networks that have Rail JTW CFERs.
For the GCCSAs and their surrounding areas, there are about 25 Bicycle CFERs across Sydney, Newcastle, Wollongong and the Blue Mountains area; about 20 across greater Melbourne; almost 30 across Brisbane-SEQ; 17 across greater Adelaide; and 10 across Perth.
