The beginning point of the boundary is situated on Map Spalding (Sheet 6630-4) at grid reference TH696675, being the intersection of an unsealed road and the Main North Road, then proceeds east south easterly along the Main North Road until its intersection with Anama Lane at grid reference TH732663, then proceeds generally easterly along Anama Lane crossing the Clare to Spalding Road at grid reference TH760663 and continuing to its intersection with the Clare to Hilltown Road at grid reference TH823658, then proceeds generally southerly along the Clare to Hilltown Road to its intersection with unsealed road at grid reference TH723657, then proceeds generally easterly along the unsealed road until the unsealed road becomes a vehicular track at grid reference TH847661, then proceeds generally east and then north east along vehicular track until it crosses unnamed creek at grid reference TH864666, then proceeds generally north easterly along another unnamed creek until it meets vehicular track at grid reference TH876676, then proceeds in a north easterly direction along vehicular track to the Old Stone Wall on the top of the Camels Hump Range at grid reference TH880679, then proceeds in a south south easterly direction following the Old Stone Wall to the edge of map at grid reference TH894633; On to Map Clare (Sheet 6630-III) at grid reference TH894633, then proceeds along the same Old Stone Wall on the top of Camels Hump Range in a generally southerly direction crossing the Clare to Farrell Flat Road at grid reference TH897557, then proceeds in a straight line along Camels Hump Range in a generally southerly direction to the intersection of an unsealed road and a vehicular track at grid reference TH889524, then proceeds east south east along the unsealed road to the intersection with a vehicular track at grid reference TH903523, then proceeds south south west along the vehicular track to the unsealed roads at grid reference TH901506, then proceeds in the same straight line along unsealed road to its intersection with another unsealed road at grid reference TH889494, then proceeds south easterly along another unsealed road, crossing the Mintaro to Farrell Flat Road to the underground natural gas pipeline at grid reference TH916488; then proceeds south westerly along the pipeline to the intersection with an unsealed road at grid reference TH907467, then proceeds south south easterly along unsealed road crossing the Mintaro to Merildin road to its intersection with another unsealed road at grid reference TH916434, then proceeds west south west along unsealed road to its intersection with another unsealed road on the eastern boundary of the Hundred of Upper Wakefield at grid reference TH904430, then proceed south south easterly along the eastern boundary of the Hundred of Upper Wakefield to the edge of map at grid reference TH922363; On to Map Apoinga (Sheet 6630-II) at grid reference TH922363, then continues south south easterly along the eastern boundary of the Hundred of Upper Wakefield to the edge of map at grid reference TH924356; On to Map Riverton (Sheet 6629-I) at grid reference TH924356, then continues south south easterly along the eastern boundary of the Hundred of Upper Wakefield to Pine Creek being the southern corner of the Hundred at grid reference TH932323, then proceeds generally south westerly along Pine Creek being the southern boundary of the Hundred of Upper Wakefield to the edge of map at grid reference TH923314; On to Map Halbury (Sheet 6629-IV) at grid reference TH923314, then continues generally south westerly along Pine Creek being the southern boundary of the Hundred of Upper Wakefield to its intersection with an unnamed road at grid reference TH908302, then proceeds generally south westerly along an unsealed road to the road junction adjacent to ford at grid reference TH907301, then proceed south easterly and then southerly along another unsealed road to the Auburn to Saddleworth Road at grid reference TH908284, thence proceeds west south westerly along an unsealed road past Sunny Side to its intersection with the Main North Road in Undalya at grid reference TH871271, then proceeds north along the Main North Road to the bridge over the Wakefield River at grid reference TH871272, then proceeds along the Wakefield River in a generally south westerly direction to the bridge where the unsealed Rhynie to Halbury Road crosses the river at grid reference TH804236, then proceeds south westerly along the Rhynie to Halbury Road to its intersection with another unsealed road at grid reference TH800233, then proceeds north westerly along the unsealed road to the road intersection at grid reference TH799234, then proceeds generally northerly along an unsealed road past Pine View to its intersection with the Auburn to Halbury Road at grid reference TH795285, then proceeds west along the unsealed Auburn to Halbury Road to the next intersection with an unsealed road at grid reference TH790284, then proceeds north westerly along an unsealed road to its intersection with a vehicular track at grid reference TH783293, then proceeds generally northerly along the vehicular track until its intersection with the 300 metre contour at grid reference TH785309, then proceeds along the 300 metre contour in a generally northerly direction crossing the Leasingham to Hoyleton Road at grid reference TH778326 and continuing along the 300 metre contour to the edge of map at grid reference TH774353;
