Why is it only at a CITY level....  Why not more detail? Surely it doesn't compromise the visitors identity in anyway.

Is there another Analytics tool out there in the WWW that gives me more detailed tracking... especially by "suburb" & "keyword"

It'd certainly be great for small local businesses. 
Could also be interesting comparing traffic to voting history for smaller neighborhoods (for the policos amongst us).

I would think the limitation arises from the tracking of an IP address. Now it is possible to track an IP address down to a defined location; however, it is not that easy. Though IP address location databases have been improving over the years, it's still not entirely accurate. It often takes a large amount of resources to pinpoint a user down to a specific zip code, street, or town.

My opinion, since I am no expert, is that it would take Google a large amount of time, bandwidth, and resources to accomplish this task that probably isn't worth it at this moment. Not to say there isn't a need for it. Hope this helped.

Cheers!

Usually this information relies on large geo IP lookup tables supported by a 3rd party and updated continually.
It is not 100% accurate. Sometimes your IP will be the location of the ISP junction point.
