Northern Australia, that 39 per cent of landmass north of the Tropic of Capricorn, remains at the frontier of colonial expansionism. The most recent policy contribution to this imperative is the report of the Joint Select Committee on Northern Australia, Pivot North ('Report'). The Report is part of the latest process to develop a white paper aimed at defining policy for 'realising the full economic potential of the north.' It follows decades of similar unfulfilled reports, but supports an invigorated government platform expressed in the Coalition's 2030 Vision for Developing Northern Australia.
