    Under international law, Australia has rights and responsibilities over its adjacent waters. The main international agreement outlining these rights and responsibilities is the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. In general, Australia has greater rights over the maritime zones closer to its coasts.
    Australia’s maritime zones are:
    - Internal waters
    - Territorial sea
    - Contiguous zone
    - Exclusive economic zone
    - Continental shelf
