Abstract

This edition has been superseded by the Australia's Maritime Zones Edition 4 map published in October 2013. Geocat 69822. It no longer correctly reflects Australia's maritime zones and is kept for historical record only. This map has been derived from Geoscience Australia's Australian Maritime Boundaries (AMB) version 2.0 data which is a digital representation of Australia's territorial sea baseline and the maritime limits and boundaries as established under the Sea and Submerged Lands Act 1973. The map describes the different maritime zones, explains how Australia defines and updates its maritime boundaries, and lists the different maritime boundary arrangements with Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, France (New Calendonia and Kerguelen) and New Zealand. The limits of the extended continental shelf beyond the exclusive economic zone, as shown on this map, are as submitted for consideration of the United Nations Commision on the Limits of the Continental Shelf (CLCS). In accordance with Australia's request the CLCS has indicated that it will not consider the extended continental shelf appurtenant to the Australian Antarctic Territory for the time being. This map shows the extent of Australia's maritime boundaries, stretching from Heard and McDonald Islands in the west to Norfolk Island in the east, and from the Torres Strait and Arafura Sea in the north to the Australian Antarctic Territory in the south. This map can be purchased in either flat or folded format. Also available as GIS data or PDF.
