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 Rangelands region

The CSIRO has regions for projecting the impact of Climate Change. See https://www.climatechangeinaustralia.gov.au/en/climate-projections/futur... This sub-state, Darling River Sub-State (S1), is included in 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 Sub-State bit West of the Central Slopes region).
