Formatted Abstract/Summary Megalopolis is a large liquid metropolis whose boundary demarcation is always provisional. It is a giant metropolitan region always in a state of becoming, as well as being. (Short, 2007, p.16-17) ...the paper is divided into three sections. The first section ‘Megalopolis Unbound’ recovers some of the key tenets of thinking from the megalopolis literature that highlight the implications for urban governance across complexity and scale. The second part of the paper ‘the 200km city (and beyond)’ builds on this to explore the contemporary governance conditions and challenges of an emergent Australian megametro region in the SEQ/Tweed region that crosses over into the Queensland/New South Wales border. Finally, the third section ‘National Narratives’ focuses on the potential role of national spatial policy to address these new spatial settlement patterns attentive to the principle of subsidiarity in a climate of change.
