Australia - too little information

Searching for city names in australia tells me that there is no such city found, doesn't even offer to give me a city nearby. Which is fine since most of my searches are by latitude and longitude and I see it returning data for those queries, it does find some weather stations nearby and it does return the temperature. The problem is that the current_conditions.weather is empty - thus we have to display a N/A icon instead of the condition.

It seems to be the case for a lot of Australian locations. I understand that it might be that those stations do not report the data, but is it something that you see getting updated/fixed in the near future ?

Here is a sample that you can try - http://api.wunderground.com/api/KEY/a...

Or just searching for the city "Sarina, Australia". Doesn't even work if I use the zip code followed by australia.

Thank you

I agree -- our location name database is certainly lacking for some countries, but we're planning to greatly expand the map database later this year.

This will greatly reduce the number of "unknown" responses for searches around the globe.
