Item: Northern Inland Catchments bioregion

URI: http://environment.data.gov.au/def/ba/glossary/northern-inland-catchments-bioregion

The Northern Inland Catchments bioregion is located west of the Great Dividing Range in eastern Australia and includes parts of the northern Murray–Darling Basin in northern New South Wales and southern Queensland. The Northern Inland Catchments bioregion adjoins the Clarence-Moreton bioregion in the north-east, and the Northern Sydney Basin bioregion in the south. The bioregion was selected for assessment because of the likely coal seam gas and coal mining development and the potential for water dependent impacts on the environment and other water-using industries such as agriculture. The Northern Inland Catchments bioregion includes four subregions: the Maranoa-Balonne-Condamine, Gwydir, Namoi and Central West subregions. The subregion boundaries follow river basin boundaries, but only include areas that have the types of rocks known to contain coal and coal seam gas. Some water resources outside the Northern Inland Catchments bioregion that may potentially be impacted as a result of coal and coal seam gas development in the Northern Inland Catchments bioregion will also be considered in the assessment.
