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.
