Boundaries

As constituted in 1869, the Diocese was bounded on the East by the South Pacific Ocean, from Point Danger to the Hastings River, on the North by the Queensland border from Point Danger to Angledool, on the West by a line from Angledool to the Barwon River at a point 16 km west of Walgett, then by the Barwon and Namoi Rivers, on the South by the Namoi and Hastings Rivers. Area: 120,000 sq km. Since the dismemberment of the Diocese in 1887, when its coastal area (28,500 sq km) was erected into the Diocese of Lismore, and the rearrangement consequent thereon, whereby the northern extremity of the Maitland Diocese - consisting of the two Parishes of Tamworth and Gunnedah - was incorporated into the Diocese of Armidale, the boundaries have been, and are: - On the east the Diocese of Lismore, from the western slopes of Mt. Lindesay along a line running west of Urbenville between Tabulam and Drake, the banks of the Henry River at Newton Boyd, Hernani and Ebor; George's Creek and the Chandler River to Mt. Seaview on the north, the Queensland border from Mt Lindesay to Angledool; On the west, a line from the border east of Angledool and Lightning Ridge to the Barwon River at a point 16 km west of Walgett and continued in a south-easterly direction past Baradine to Apple Tree Mount on the Warrumbungle Range, which it then follows between Coonabarabran and Rocky Glen, Coolah and Blackville to the Liverpool Range; On the south, the Liverpool Range which first runs due east, then turns north-east between Murrurundi and Ardglen to its junction with Mt. Royal Range, and therefrom a straight line passing south of Nowendoc to Mt. Seaview. Area: 91,500 sq km.
