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?

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

- 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 Southern & South-Western Flatlands region

The CSIRO has regions for projecting the impact of Climate Change. See This state, Great Australian Bight (X), is included in a CSIRO cluster called "Southern & South-Western Flatlands region" (exluding the tiny bit above). CSIRO's Southern & South-Western Flatlands region coincides with BloggerMe's N,P,Q, and a tiny bit of X and a tiny bit of R.

Other regional projections - CSIRO part of Rangelands region

The CSIRO has regions for projecting the impact of Climate Change. See This state, Great Australian Bight (X), is one of the clear projections in a CSIRO cluster called "Rangelands region". CSIRO's Rangelands region coincides with BloggerMe's L,M,X (missing a tiny bit), R (missing a tiny bit), but includes a large bit of S (the Darling River bit).

Careers: Take a ‘Bight’ out of your PhD with a top-up scholarship for Great Australian Bight study ^KL

The Great Australian Bight Research Program is a partnership initiative that involves BP, CSIRO, SARDI, the University of Adelaide and Flinders University.  This $20M, four-year, multi-disciplinary, multi-agency research program aims to improve our understanding of the environmental, economic and social value of the Great Australian Bight ecosystem. The program will obtain information about the unique marine environment and potential marine resources within the Ceduna sub-basin of the Great Australian Bight, and provide vital information to decision makers to support sustainable development in the region and monitor possible future impacts.

Top-ups for Australian Postgraduate Award or Divisional (PhD) scholarships are available in 2014/15 for the following areas within the Great Australian Bight Research Program:
