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?

- What is the State's interest in the islands to the north? Who would be the Senator that represents the super-State for the Cape-York peninsula? What other States would be involved in this super-State?

- Should there be a separate super-State for the whole of the Gulf of Carpentaria?

- 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? Does it have a good water system? Does it have a general hospital? What is schooling like in this State? Does it have a university? it appears not to have. We think that it should.

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.

"The status of Australian dugongs varies greatly. Shark Bay supports a large dugong population with minimal human pressures, making it the most secure dugong population in the world. On the other hand, the urban coast of the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) region between Cairns and Bundaberg poses many threats to dugongs.

"Torres Strait is the world’s largest dugong habitat. Surveys conducted by my group at James Cook University show that the region contains a remarkable 58% of the habitat supporting high densities of dugongs in Queensland, as illustrated by the map below."

"Dugong habitat in Torres Strait is much more extensive than we thought. In 2010, the Torres Strait Regional Authority partnered with scientists at Fisheries Queensland to conduct the first seagrass survey of far western Torres Strait. This survey discovered that this very remote region supported the largest continuous seagrass bed in Australia. My group subsequently extended our aerial survey of Torres Strait to cover this area and established that it also supports a sizable dugong population."

"The Great Artesian Basin is huge and ancient underground “water tank” big enough to fill Sydney Harbour 130,000 times. It streches from Cape York down to Dubbo and further west than Coober Pedy and has been providing the only reliable source of fresh water for rural communities in Queensland, New South Wales, South Australia and the Northern Territory since the first bore holes were sunk in the 19th century. But new interactions between industries such as agriculture, mining and the water itself has prompted the big question: how does the Great Artesian Basin really work?

"Great Artesian Basin Water Resource Assessment was released this week. It’s the most comprehensive assessment to date of the Basin’s water flows and physical structure (its hydrology and geology).

"Based on research by CSIRO and Geoscience Australia, the assessment provides a substantial update to knowledge about the Basin, benefiting from improved techniques to measure and monitor water movement, and incorporating new methodologies that link a range of “development” and management scenarios. The last assessment of the Basin, which primarily focused on hydrology, was in 1980."

Brian Smerdon Senior Research Scientist, Groundwater Hydrology at CSIRO: The Conversation 28 March 2013, 2.33pm AEST
