Without having any detail about Australia, I know for sure that there
are boundaries which are legally defined in relation to a river or other
natural feature, and will move if the feature moves. Other boundaries
are defined as a geometric line which, at the time of definition,
happened to coincide with a natural feature but will not move with it.
And that's all not even considering plate tectonics.
