Queensland Murray-Darling and Bulloo Basins

The Queensland Murray-Darling and Bulloo Basins contain a wide range of wetland types (riverine and non-riverine) within the 4 distinct bioregions of the southern Brigalow Belt, the New England Tablelands, the Mulga Lands and the Channel Country. As a result, many diverse wetland types with their individual characteristics of geomorphology, hydrology, habitat and species composition are found throughout the region.

The Bulloo Basin is included in this assessment to align with Natural Resource Management boundaries and the Healthy Waters Management Plans. This new version supersedes the Bulloo assessment that was part of the Lake Eyre and Bulloo Basins ACA (2016) and the Queensland Murray-Darling Basin ACA (2011).

Find out more about accessing the data and reports on the get mapping help page.

The riverine and non-riverine data and reporting (information on specific environmental values, by location) may be accessed through WetlandMaps.

Information on specific environmental values, by location, is also available via Environmental reports online.
