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? What benefit would flow from a concept of a the super-Regions for the Arnhem Land & the Giulf 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? 

- 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 Monsoon North region

The CSIRO has regions for projecting the impact of Climate Change. See https://www.climatechangeinaustralia.gov.au/en/climate-projections/futur... This state, East Arnhem State (G), is one of the clear projections in a CSIRO cluster called "Monsoon North region". CSIRO's Monsoon North region coincides exactly with BloggerMe's K,J,H,G,F,E,D,C,AF.

@WhyWarriors Are Elcho Is. mob OK? MT @abcnewsNT #CycloneLam turns S/W, heading for near Milingimbi or Gapuwiyak,

"Towns in the path of gathering cyclones are routinely reported to “brace” for their arrival.

"In north-east Arnhem Land, on the estimated route of tropical cyclone Lam, some people are certainly readying themselves in anticipation. Not least, those communities in Lam’s immediate path at Cape Wessel and Elcho Island are preparing for the worst damage that could be wrought by a category four storm.

"Those who have lived for a long time in this part of far northern Australia approach the prospect of cyclone without surprise or too much evident fear. It is part of a rhythm, a vital cycle, that the Yolngu people have lived through for tens of thousands of years.

"In some ways the anticipation of Lam, which was gathering energy and moving south-west in the Gulf of Carpentaria on Wednesday, is the tale of different peoples – the Yolngu and the non-Indigenous.

"The Yolngu will tell you that before the white man came and built his missions and then his hotels and his government buildings, cyclones heading for the coast were approached with matter-of-fact caution and respect, though rarely fear. The people took themselves inland or to the dunes, where they buried themselves neck-deep in sand and waited for the storm to pass."
