The South Australia Act: the formal creation of the new colony.

The Act, which is dated 15 August 1834, provided for the settlement of a province on the lands between 132 and 141 degrees East longitude, and between the Southern Ocean, and 26 degrees South latitude, including the islands adjacent to the coastline. The Act largely reflected the views and pioneering work of Edward Gibbon Wakefield, who saw control of land sales as a way to finance the development of a colony.
