Landscape evolution of the Clarence River catchment: Weird rivers and wild ideas

Abstract

The Clarence River catchment in northern New South Wales is the largest river system on the southeast coast of Australia. It has a total area of 22,400 km2 with large gorges and deep valley systems on its western and southwestern margins. In the east the catchment is defined by a lowland fluvio-lacustrine, flood plain developed in two basins separated by a northerly trending ridge and marked by various anabranches and connected lagoons. Even a cursory examination of the catchment features suggests a remarkable complexity in its landscape evolution.
