Australia's location in relation to its near neighbours and their territorial boundaries
By; Teena, Vivian and Kava'ahi
Australia is an island continent that is located in the Asia-Pacific region. It's boundaries are located around the Pacific and Indian oceans.

Inside the boundaries of Australia, it has sovereign rights to marine,mineral and petroleum resources that are worth millions of dollars.

Treaties such as the United Nations Convention on the law of the sea and the international Whaling Commission overlook the management of Australia's marine boundaries and resource.
Maritime Boundaries

Australias martime boundaries are best known for their distance from land. This is based on the terrotiral sea base line which links roughly towards the low water line, and contains coasts of islands such as the lord Howe Island.
•• coastal/internal waters — first three nautical miles (nm) from TSB
• territorial sea/waters — 0 to 12 nautical miles from TSB. Australia has rights over this area and allows ‘innocent passage’ (i.e. with no harmful purpose) for foreign ships.

Treaties and Agreements

Ausrralia has the third largest exclusive economic zone in the world with an area in which is bigger than it's territory. To avoid arguements over the use of Resources. Australia's has maritime agreements with Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, France (New Caledonia) and New Zealand.

A fight has occured for the control over oil and gas in the timor gap between Australia and Timor-Leste.
