Thanks for checking this Region out.

This Region 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 Region 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 Region. We know we've got the Region pretty well correct; after all, it's just geography. But if you live in this Region you can tell us a lot of interesting things.

- Do these boundaries define a place that is unique; different to every other Region 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 Region? Who would be the Lord Mayor? Who would be the two Senators who represent this Region? Who would be the additional Senator that represents the interests of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander peoples in this region?

- 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 regional statehood based on real concepts that define life in this particular Region. 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 East Coast region

The CSIRO has regions for projecting the impact of Climate Change. See This state, Capricorn State (AE), is one of the clear projections in a CSIRO cluster called "East Coast region". CSIRO's East Coast region coincides exactly with BloggerMe's Y,Z,AA,AB,AC,AE.

Extremely serious situation for Australia as #CycloneMarcia bombs out before landfall, projected cat 5 by BoM

"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."
