Note that these totals may be lower than the Queensland totals due to incomplete coverage of drainage basins.

Disclaimer

Areas do not include marine or estuarine waters but do include estuarine wetland vegetation
(e.g. mangroves and tidal flats).

Areas are approximate and calculated using the GDA94 / Australian Albers projection.

Areas may change over time as mapping approaches improve.

Totals may not match the sum of individually displayed figures due to the rounding of displayed figures.
