A legal and historical overview of the land borders of the Australian States
MetadataShow full item record
The origins of the Australian States really lie in the story about their land borders. This article outlines when, how, and especially why, they were drawn so. It explores for the first time the reasons for the borders of South Australia which have had such a profound impact on all the other States and the Northern Territory. It also examines the role of the High Court in the legal battles between the States over their borders. Most surprising is the fact that none is actually surveyed where they should be.
