The Sanctuary Zone of the former Lord Howe Island Marine Park (Commonwealth Waters)

(a)  All of that area in the South Pacific Ocean bounded by the line(1):

(i)       commencing at the easternmost intersection of the parallel of latitude 31° 35′ 50″ S by the outer limit of the coastal waters of the State(2) of New South Wales, adjacent to Lord Howe Island;

(ii)      from there generally north-easterly and north-westerly along that outer limit to its intersection by the parallel of latitude 31° 30′ 40″ S;

(iii)     from there east along that parallel to its intersection by the outer limit of the territorial sea(3) of Australia adjacent to Lord Howe Island;

(iv)    from there generally southerly and south-easterly along that outer limit to its intersection by the parallel of latitude 31° 35′ 50″ S; and

(v)     from there west along that parallel to the point of commencement.

(b)  All of that area in the South Pacific Ocean bounded by the line(1):

(i)    commencing at the westernmost intersection of the parallel of latitude 31° 46′ 50″ S by the outer limit of the coastal waters of the State(2) of New South Wales, adjacent to Ball’s Pyramid;

(ii)   from there generally south-easterly and north-easterly along that outer limit to its easternmost intersection by the parallel of latitude 31° 46′ 50″ S;

(iii)  from there east along that parallel to its intersection by the outer limit of the territorial sea(3) of Australia adjacent to Ball’s Pyramid;

(iv) from there generally southerly, south-westerly and north-westerly along that outer limit to its intersection by the parallel of latitude 31° 46′ 50″ S; and

(v)  from there east along that parallel to the point of commencement.

Notes:

1.      Geographic coordinates are expressed in terms of the Geocentric Datum of Australia 1994 (GDA94) as described in the Commonwealth of Australia Gazette GN35 of 6 September 1995.

2.      The coastal waters of the State has the same meaning as in subsection 3 (1) of the Coastal Waters (State Powers) Act 1980.

3.      The territorial sea of Australia and its external territories is established under the Seas and Submerged Lands Act 1973 in accordance with Articles 3 and 4 of the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea.

The outer limit of the territorial sea is 12 nautical miles seaward from the territorial sea baselines established under the Act (Proclamations published in the Commonwealth of Australia Gazette No. S29 on 9 February 1983 and No. S57 on 31 March 1987).
