Thanks for checking this Sub-region out.

This Sub-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 Sub-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 Sub-region. We know we've got the Sub-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?

- Would life be enhanced if it was on a fast Ring-Rail that links the Capital Cities in the Sub-region to capital cities around Australia.

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 Murray Basin region

The CSIRO has regions for projecting the impact of Climate Change. See This sub-state, Murray River Sub-State (S4), is one of the clear projections in a CSIRO cluster called "Murray Basin region". CSIRO's Murray Basin region coincides with BloggerMe's S2,S3,S4,S5.

"Murray crayfish never fail to impress. When you pull up the hoop nets from the murky depths and those large white claws start waving about, the uninitiated invariably recoil, sometimes even threatening to upset the boat in their efforts to avoid these spiny armoured angry aliens."
