Thanks for checking this State out.

This State is prepared on the a-political concept that if you are interested in 'place' in Australia, the most important aspect that defines 'place', is the 'flow of water'. The Senate is interested in 'place'.

This State defines its boundaries at the top of the ridge, where water flows one way rather than the other. This leads to a very interesting 'place'.

We are seeking a debate with people who live in this proposed new State. We know we've got the State pretty well correct, after all, it's just geography.

But if you live in this State you can tell us a lot of interesting things.

- Do these boundaries define a place that is unique; different to every other State in Australia? We think that that is probably quite likely.

- Is it a great place, worthy of recognition?

- Upon formation, what should be the name of this State? Who would be the Premier? Who would be the two Senators who represent this State? Who would be the Senator that represents the super-State for the Great Barrier reef?

- Would life be enhanced if it was on a fast Ring-Rail that links the Capital City to every other Capital City in Australia?

- Many other interesting things!

We think that this is a great new concept of Statehood based on real concepts that define life in this particular State. What do you think?

NOTE2: The red line is part of the original Aboriginal Australia Map © 1991. The black line is added by Bloggerme for discussion only. It shows the likely State boundary based on the flow of water only. As "the ridge" (See FOWTOR) naturally impacts on the development of the language, social or nation groups of the Indigenous people of Australia, the proposed border is often identical to the group boundary shown on the Aboriginal Australia Map. This is as was expected. Variations are social/historical & result in a particular language, social or nation group being represented in two adjoining States.











Other regional projections - CSIRO part of Monsoon North region

The CSIRO has regions for projecting the impact of Climate Change. See This state, Charters State (AF), is one of the clear projections in a CSIRO cluster called "Monsoon North region". CSIRO's Monsoon North region coincides exactly with BloggerMe's K,J,H,G,F,E,D,C,AF.

"What you need to know about Tropical Cyclone Marcia.

"This afternoon Tropical Cyclone Marcia was upgraded to a category four system.

"It is expected to make landfall between Mackay and Gladstone, lashing the areas with destructive gusts of up to 270 kilometres per hour (kph) at about 3:00am Friday.
Higher than normal tides, dangerous surf conditions and rainfall totals exceeding 500mm over a 24-hour period in some areas are forecast, bringing a risk of tidal and flash flooding.

"In a press conference this morning, Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk told residents to 'get ready now'.

"Flights in-and-out of the region have been cancelled.

"For help during a flood or storm call the SES on 132 500; for life-threatening emergencies call 000.

"ABC Local Radio will have continuous coverage through the night and into the morning as the cyclone makes landfall."

STATES would be abolished and more power given to city and regional councils in a two-tier government under a radical proposal to shake up the nation's economy.

Under the controversial plan, Queensland would split into six regions and shed the state government in favour of a bigger federal parliament, five city and 19 regional councils nationally, the Courier-Mail reports.
