We now have the map in pride of place in our dining area, and it is a constant source of information and discussion.
Just this morning I noticed that there was something extra in the map ............ and extra "border" line, bisecting the Northern Territory. The two sections are named North Australia and Central Australia.
Blow me down !!!!
A little searching informed me that indeed there were a few years when this was the official designation of borders.


"Central Australia was a territory of Australia that existed from 1927 to 1931.[1] It was formed from the split of the Northern Territory in 1927 alongside the territory of North Australia; the dividing line between the two was 20 degrees south latitude. The two territories were merged in 1931 to reform the Northern Territory.

Central Australia's seat was in Stuart, which was known commonly, and has been officially since 1933, as Alice Springs."

And here's a link for those interested.

Sorry but Wiki isn't cooperating. Look up Central Australia Territory.
