I would argue that this boundary is a natural boundary as defined here: https://rg-guidelines.nswlrs.com.au/dep ... definition

NSW Parks would be aware of this. While we can no longer use the campsite, we still have legal access to the pool from the north bank.

That same document says that where a property fronts non-tidal water, there is a presumption (unless proven otherwise) that the property includes the stream bed to the centreline of the watercourse.

I doubt that that there is a rule that says a boundary must be 'natural'. I'm sure someone mentioned previously, and what is shown on SIX (NSW Gov't), that the boundary is 20m or so to the north of the river.

If you have done any mapping professionally, you would know that due to mapping errors and resources, lines on a map are an estimate of the survey. This is why surveyors still have a job and the legislation relies on guidelines like those in my other post.

Jesus! This is getting quite complicated...and pedantic. Lucky none of these restrictions concern me, that would be annoying.

That is what happens when you get close to a 'boundary' and want to use the last yard. Like swimming in a river that looks like it might be the boundary.

Thanks for your support everyone. Any information anyone can find out is appreciated. Also if anyone has any photos from many years ago please post them on the Facebook group and here. We want to prove that people have been visiting this area for half a century. The Facebook group Keep Corang Open! Now has 80 members which demonstrates the level of community support. We are making enquiries of council and trying to find out the contact details for the owner. We will keep this blog and the fb group informed. In the meantime please keep asking your friends quietly to join the fb group so they can stay informed.

When we contact the owner, we can ask what they will sell for. Most people have some price that would make it worthwhile. I would fundraise for that.

David, best contact the local ranger. I believe he has contact with the owners. Phone call to the nowra NPWS office will point you to the right direction.
