Abstract The main theme of this article is the coastal surveillance and the laws related to the interdiction for Australia's offshore protection. Public attitudes are an important factor in modern democratic governmental systems. The ability to estimate public opinion has obviously been characteristic of anyone standing for a leadership position since humans first formed tribes. This article assesses public opinion within the area, with the intention of giving some idea of what the public understands is meant by 'surveillance' and 'interdiction'; whether the public knows who is doing this, and whether the effort is effective.
