Q101. Every mainland State (plus the Northern Territory) in Australia has a border with the State of South Australia. How far would you travel, in kilometres, if you started at at the southern end of the border between Western Australia and South Asutralia and walked along the entire length of South Australia's border (north then east then south), to the southern end of the border between Victoria and South Australia? (the distance is the same in the opposite direction)
