4              Definitions

         (1)   In this Proclamation:

Geocentric Datum of Australia means the datum described in Schedule 1.

low-water means Lowest Astronomical Tide.

straight line means a geodesic line.

         (2)   For the purposes of this Proclamation, the position on the surface of the Earth of a point, line or area is to be determined by reference to the Geocentric Datum of Australia.

6              Sea-ward limits — Anxious Bay

         (1)   Subject to section 10, the sea-ward limits of Anxious Bay are defined by each of the straight lines constituted by joining the 2 points on the low-water line of the coast that are on, or closest to, 2 points of latitude and longitude specified in the same paragraph in subsection (2).

         (2)   For subsection (1), the points of latitude and longitude are:

                (a)    from 33° 11¢ 58.9² S 134° 19¢ 43.1² E to 33° 35¢ 35.9² S 134° 45¢ 08.0² E; and

               (b)    from 33° 35¢ 45.2² S 134° 46¢ 00.3² E to 33° 35¢ 53.9² S 134° 46¢ 35.0² E; and

7              Sea-ward limits — Encounter Bay

         (1)   Subject to section 10, the sea-ward limits of Encounter Bay are defined by the straight line constituted by joining the 2 points on the low-water line of the coast that are on, or closest to, the points of latitude and longitude specified in subsection (2).

         (2)   For subsection (1), the points of latitude and longitude are from 35° 35¢ 42.6² S 138° 36¢ 09.4² E to 35° 35¢ 42.8² S 138° 57¢ 29.0² E.

8              Sea-ward limits — Lacepede Bay

         (1)   Subject to section 10, the sea-ward limits of Lacepede Bay are defined by the straight line constituted by joining the 2 points on the low-water line of the coast that are on, or closest to, the points of latitude and longitude specified in subsection (2).

         (2)   For subsection (1), the points of latitude and longitude are from 36° 35¢ 47.4² S 139° 50¢ 02.8² E to 36° 56¢ 32.5² S 139° 40¢ 30.4² E.
