Thanks Ian. You should have a look at the NSW LPI Base Map ... just have 
done a wetland area from it ...

Way: 593948495

Small mod so it does not cross  the river bank that was previously entered.

As it is there data that I'm reproducing I'm comfortable that the 
boundaries accuracy can be blamed on someone other than me, but they 
look ok to me.

Good luck finding something similar in WA ... it has a wealth of stuff 
on it.

LPI means land and property information .. they keep the register of who 
owns what and where boundaries are.

Should be something similar over there. Good Luck.
