Locating the Mouth of a River in Australian Law

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The identification of the mouth of a river at law is a more difficult prospect

    than may first appear. Geography and the action of tides can make the

    location of a river mouth a difficult prospect. The law has had to face

    the question of identifying the mouth of a river over the centuries and a

    volume of statute and common law has built up, presenting a range of

    solutions. This article considers the historic approaches taken in statute

    and common law, with a view to distilling the key elements necessary to

    locate the mouth of a river.
