Division 3 Working out particular areas

7Purpose of div 3

This division states the method for working out an area within a zone or a designated area of the marine park that must be worked out by extending a Commonwealth area that is at the State at low water to the landward boundary of the marine park.

8Rule for working out areas extending Commonwealth areas to the mainland

(1)This section applies to an area that is to be worked out by extending a Commonwealth area that is at the mainland at low water to the landward boundary of the marine park.
(2)The area must be worked out by extending, in the way mentioned in section 10, the relevant boundaries of the Commonwealth area from the landward boundary of the area to the landward boundary of the marine park.

9Rules for working out areas extending Commonwealth areas to an island

(1)This section applies to an area that is to be worked out by extending a Commonwealth area that is at an island at low water to the landward boundary of the marine park.
(2)If the whole of the island at low water adjoins the same Commonwealth area, the area must be worked out by extending the landward boundary of the Commonwealth area to the landward boundary of the marine park.
(3)If the island at low water adjoins 2 or more Commonwealth areas, the areas adjoining the island must be worked out by extending, in the way mentioned in section 10, the relevant boundaries of the Commonwealth areas from the landward boundary of the areas to the landward boundary of the marine park.

10How relevant boundaries are to be extended

(1)This section states the way a relevant boundary of a Commonwealth area must be extended to the landward boundary of the marine park under section 8 or section 9(3).
(2)If the relevant boundary is a headland boundary, the relevant boundary must be extended to the landward boundary of the marine park by joining, in a straight line, the intersection point for the relevant boundary to the closest point on the landward boundary of the marine park.
(3)If the relevant boundary is not a headland boundary, the relevant boundary must be extended to the landward boundary of the marine park in a straight line at the angle at which the relevant boundary meets the landward boundary of the area.
(4)In this section—
headland boundary means a relevant boundary of a Commonwealth area that—
(a)meets the landward boundary of the Commonwealth area at or near a headland; and
(b)will not, if it is extended in a straight line at the angle at which the relevant boundary meets the landward boundary, meet the landward boundary of the marine park on the headland.

Example for definition headland boundary

The eastern relevant boundary of the Commonwealth area that adjoins Nara Inlet at low water is a headland boundary because—
(a)the relevant boundary meets the landward boundary of the Commonwealth area immediately south of a headland on the eastern side of the entrance to Nara Inlet; and
(b)if the relevant boundary is extended in a straight line at the angle at which the relevant boundary meets the landward boundary of the Commonwealth area, the relevant boundary will not meet the landward boundary of the marine park on the headland on the eastern side of the entrance to Nara Inlet.
intersection point, for a relevant boundary of a Commonwealth area, means the point where the relevant boundary meets the landward boundary of the area.

11Area that is within the zone or designated area worked out under this division

(1)This section states the area that is within the zone or designated area of the marine park worked out under section 8 or 9.
(2)The area that is within the zone or designated area is—
(a)for an area worked out under section 8 or section 9(3)—the area that is formed by the following lines—
(i)the line that runs along the landward boundary of the Commonwealth area;
(ii)the lines that extend the relevant boundaries of the relevant Commonwealth area to the landward boundary of the marine park;
(iii)the line that runs along the landward boundary of the marine park; or
(b)for an area worked out under section 9(2)—the area that is between the landward boundary of the Commonwealth area and the landward boundary of the marine park.

Division 4 Working out particular lines

12Working out lines by reference to 2 points

(1)This section states the method for working out a line mentioned in this plan if the line must be worked out by reference to 2 points.
(2)If both points are on the landward boundary of the marine park (each a boundary point), the line is the line that runs along a geodesic between the 2 boundary points.
(3)If 1 point is on the landward boundary of the marine park (the boundary point) and the other point is either landward or seaward of the landward boundary of the marine park (the non-boundary point), the line is the line that runs along a geodesic between the following points—
(a)the boundary point;
(b)the point where the geodesic that passes through the boundary point and the non-boundary point intersects the landward boundary of the marine park.
(4)If 1 point is landward of the landward boundary of the marine park (the starting point) and the other point is either landward or seaward of the landward boundary of the marine park (the ending point), the line is the line that runs along a geodesic between the following points—
(a)the point where the geodesic that passes through the starting point and ending point intersects the landward boundary of the marine park near the starting point;
(b)the point where the geodesic that passes through the starting point and ending point intersects the landward boundary near the ending point.
(5)If both points are seaward of the landward boundary of the marine park (each a seaward point), the line is the line that runs along a geodesic between the following points—
(a)the point where the geodesic that passes through the 2 seaward points intersects the landward boundary of the marine park near 1 of the seaward points;
(b)the point where the geodesic that passes through the 2 points intersects the landward boundary of the marine park near the other seaward point.

Division 5 Other aids to interpretation

13References to latitudes and longitudes

The latitudes and longitudes used to describe an area mentioned in this plan are worked out using the Geocentric Datum of Australia 1994, commonly called ‘GDA94’, notified in the Commonwealth Government Gazette No. GN 35 on 6 September 1995, at page 3369.

14Significance of particular sequences of letters or numbers

(1)The sequence of letters and numbers starting with the letters ‘QI’ and preceding a name of an area described in schedule 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 or 7 is the unique identifier given under this plan to identify the area.
(2)The bracketed sequence of letters or numbers, or letters and numbers, that follows a reference to a cay, island, reef or rock mentioned in this plan is included to provide additional information for identifying the cay, island, reef or rock.
