Catchment Profiles

Welcome to the interactive Story Maps for the Wet Tropics basins.  The stories bring together science and knowledge into an holistic catchment profile, presented through map journals, videos, spatial information, photographs and narrative. 

The Catchment Profiles describe the physical features of the catchments, such as geology, topography, natural features and land uses.  As well, a range of experts with diverse knowledge of the area have 'walked the landscape' of each catchment, systematically working through the catchment to identify values and management priorities. 

Click through the tabs within the Story Maps to find the information you are interested in or make the most of the interactive nature of the maps and follow links to more information.
