Thanks for checking this State out.

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

- Do these boundaries define a place that is unique; different to every other State 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 State? Who would be the Premier? Who would be the two Senators who represent this State?

- 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 Statehood based on real concepts that define life in this particular State. What do you think?

The proposed Murray-Darling Basin Plan has been one of the most controversial pieces of public policy in Australia’s recent history. There has been the predictable divide between irrigators calling for more water to be extracted from the river, and environmentalists, who say too much is coming out already. But between the two, many experts are looking at the nuances of the plan and saying it’s a lot more complex than farming versus nature.
