Covering an area of more than 1.3 million square kilometres, the tropical rivers region of Australia includes 55 river basins and extends across all catchments from the west side of Cape York to the Kimberley, through Queensland, the Northern Territory and Western Australia. It includes some of Australia’s largest river systems, which are, by area’ the Flinders, Roper, Victoria and Fitzroy Rivers and, by volume, the Nicholson and Mitchell Rivers. This report presents results of a scoping study of the social and economic values of Australia’s tropical rivers and broader water resources. It identifies eight themes for research.
