Item: Galilee subregion - showing version 2

URI: http://environment.data.gov.au/def/ba/glossary/galilee-subregion

The Galilee subregion is part of the Lake Eyre Basin bioregion and is entirely within Queensland. It extends westwards across the Great Dividing Range and into the Lake Eyre drainage basin. The subregion is sparsely populated, with most people living in towns and localities including Charleville, Barcaldine, Blackall and Hughenden. The subregion encompasses the headwaters of several major waterways including the Cooper Creek and the Diamantina, Belyando, Cape, Thomson, Barcoo, Flinders, Bulloo, and Warrego rivers. In addition to the river systems, the subregion has numerous wetlands, springs, waterholes and lakes, including the nationally important lakes Buchanan and Galilee. Some of these are home to diverse and unique plants and animals, many of which are listed as rare or threatened under Queensland and Commonwealth legislation. Native vegetation consists largely of grasslands in the west and open eucalyptus woodlands in the east. Cattle and sheep grazing on native pasture is the main land use and groundwater is of great importance.
