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 there be in seeing the island as a super region made up of three regions?
- Would life be enhanced if it was on a fast Ring-Rail that links the Capital City to other capital cities on the island and to every other Capital City on the mainland?

NOTE2: 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 Southern Slopes region
The CSIRO has regions for projecting the impact of Climate Change. See https://www.climatechangeinaustralia.gov.au/en/climate-projections/futur... This state, Portland State (V), is one of the clear projections in a CSIRO cluster called "Southern Slopes region". CSIRO's Southern Slopes region coincides exactly with BloggerMe's T,O,U,V,W.
