Boundary Islet

Boundary Islet, historically known as North East Islet, part of the Hogan Island Group, is a 2 ha islet that straddles the border of the Australian states of Victoria and Tasmania.

The islet is Tasmania's only land boundary, and at 85 m long, it is the shortest land border between any Australian states or territory.

It is located at latitude 3912? S, about 56 km east of the southernmost point of mainland Victoria. The boundary between Victoria and Tasmania is a parallel similarly at latitude 3912?. The position of the island was surveyed in 1801 by Captain John Black, who erred in placing the islet further north than it is. It was later found that the border at 3912? S passed through the islet.

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.
