AFAIK, that sort of title does not exist in Victoria, but absolute frontage to a river (or the ocean, for that matter) often exists on titles that pre-date the 1860s.

My cousin has absolute frontage to the high-water mark in a seaside location in Victoria's south-west, thanks to a common law title that dated from the 1850s - before Torrens title was introduced in Victoria. He and his partner had to establish a chain of title when they purchased the property in the early 1980s - not all that challenging, given that European settlement only dates from the 1840s! I think the property became automatically registered on Torrens title after they had purchased it, but that did not remove their absolute frontage to the ocean, of course.

I found this article in the Age newspaper and thought it was relevant to this discussion it was published on the September 9, 2012. This is about two thirds of the article for the rest click link bellow.

I hope this puts an end to the construction of inappropriate buildings on the banks of the Yarra.
If the alp get back in will they reverse this decision and go back to destroying the character of the river?

The government should really just ban landscaping.
