In 2010-11, local government contributed $1,259.9m (19%) to the estimate of total government expenditure on cultural activities. Expenditure levels on cultural activities generally reflect the size of the population, with the highly populated states spending more on cultural activities. In 2010-11, the estimate of expenditure by local government authorities on cultural activities in New South Wales was $409.7m, in Victoria $354.8m and $228.6m in Queensland. The combined expenditure of these states on cultural activities represented 79% of total local government expenditure on cultural activities. (Table 13)
