Beveridge Island

Beveridge Island is an island in Victoria, Australia, within the locality of Tyntynder in the Rural City of Swan Hill.

It is enclosed by the Murray River, and an anabranch of the river in the south and has an area of approximately 1116 hectares.

There are no road crossings to the island over the Murray from New South Wales, or from Victoria.

In 1873, the year after the Privy Council determined that Pental Island was part of Victoria, New South Wales and Victoria agreed that Beveridge Island was also Victorian territory. This agreement was based on the conclusion of the states' respective Surveyors General that the northern branch of the Murray River was the main channel. In 1982, William Hazlett, a farmer who had been charged in the Magistrates' Court of Victoria with illegally taking water from the southern stream of the Murray River to irrigate Beveridge Island, unsuccessfully challenged this agreement in the High Court, arguing that the southern branch was the main one and the island was therefore in New South Wales. The High Court dismissed his appeal, confirming that the island was part of Victoria.

Country - Australia

Flag of Australia
Australia, officially the Commonwealth of Australia, is a sovereign country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania and numerous smaller islands. It is the largest country in Oceania and the world's sixth-largest country by total area. The neighbouring countries are Papua New Guinea, Indonesia and East Timor to the north; the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu to the north-east; and New Zealand to the south-east. The population of million is highly urbanised and heavily concentrated on the eastern seaboard. Australia's capital is Canberra, and its largest city is Sydney. The country's other major metropolitan areas are Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide.

Australia was inhabited by indigenous Australians for about 60,000 years before the first British settlement in the late 18th century. It is documented that Aborigines spoke languages that can be classified into about 250 groups. After the European exploration of the continent by Dutch explorers in 1606, who named it New Holland, Australia's eastern half was claimed by Great Britain in 1770 and initially settled through penal transportation to the colony of New South Wales from 26 January 1788, a date which became Australia's national day. The population grew steadily in subsequent decades, and by the 1850s most of the continent had been explored and an additional five self-governing crown colonies established. On 1 January 1901, the six colonies federated, forming the Commonwealth of Australia. Australia has since maintained a stable liberal democratic political system that functions as a federal parliamentary constitutional monarchy, comprising six states and ten territories.
