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 super-Regions for the whole of the Great Barrier Reef?

- 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 Wet Tropics region

The CSIRO has regions for projecting the impact of Climate Change. See This state, Carpentaria State (C), is one of the clear projections in a CSIRO cluster called "Monsoon North region". CSIRO's Wet Tropics region coincides exactly with BloggerMe's A,B,AG.

Cairns - current sea level 2017

The current sea level 2017 needs to be understood in the context of rising sea levels. See below:

Cairns - impact of 13m sea level rise - 20??

A recent scientific impact test by US scientists in the Antarctica suggests that the global warming at present happening across the world will cause a crash of glacial caps in the Antarctica will transform an expected 13 ft (4 metres) sea level rise to a 13 metres sea level rise arising from Antarctica alone. When this happens, Cairns will be taken out.
