The Commonwealth of Northern Australia had shared sovereignty of its Territory with the Commonwealth of Australia.
The territorial claim of Northern Australia consisted of all the landmasses west of 155 degrees east and east of 129 degrees east between the 9th and 26th parallels of southern latitude, all landmasses west of 155 degrees east and east of 141 degrees east all lands northward of a line commencing on the sea coast at Point Danger, in latitude about 28º 8’ south, and followed the range thence which divides the waters of the Tweed, Richmond, and Clarence Rivers from those of the Logan and Brisbane Rivers, westerly, to the great dividing range between the waters falling to the east coast and those of the River Murray; followed the great dividing range southerly to the range dividing the waters of Tenterfield Creek from those of the main head of the Dumaresq River; followed that range westerly to the Dumaresq River; and followed that river (which is locally known as the Severn) downward to its confluence with the Macintyre River; thence followed the Macintyre River, which lower down becomes the Barwan, downward to the 29th parallel of south latitude, and followed that parallel westerly to 141 degrees east the excluding territory claimed by Papua New Guinea and Indonesia. This area included all of the Australian Northern Territory and all of the Australian State of Queensland, north of the 26th parallel of southern latitude.
