I am so excited.
Blog followers know I have been frustrated in my attempt to discover the official length of the Derwent River. Now I have found the answer in Australia’s most reliable source of information. Today I found that the Australian Bureau of Statistics gives the length as 215 km. I feel vindicated. Previously, using an Opisometer on 1:25,000 Tasmanian maps, I had calculated the length of the River at 214 km – all the time knowing that some inaccuracy was possible with this device. You can read my earlier post here. Now all I have to do is to persuade Google to change their information! What chance do I have?
