Upper Condamine River
Location of Upper Condamine River basin within Queensland
The study area encompasses the Condamine River and its tributaries, upstream of the confluence with Myall Creek (south west of Dalby). The catchment area of this system is 13 292km2. The Great Dividing Range bounds the area in the east, rising to almost 1400 m in places. The southern boundary is formed by the Herries Ranges, presenting a much lower (to 800 m) border than in the east. Tributaries of the Condamine River flow through relatively narrow valleys at the headwaters, with a gradual broadening to wide alluvial plains near the Condamine River. The Condamine River catchment is part of the Murray-Darling Basin, which extends across four states.
Within the catchment area a total of 263 subsections were identified, of which 251 were surveyed. The total number of full survey sites within these subsections was 297.
