Description

Reference: QLD20
Bioregion: Brigalow Belt North
Criteria for inclusion in Directory: 1,3
Catchment: Bogie

Location

20 degrees 0' 16" S, 147 degrees 18' 7" E. Approximately 50 kilometres SSW of Ayr, in the Bogie subcatchment of the Burdekin catchment.

Significance

The site provides a good representative example of a permanent waterhole at the lower end of an intermittent stream system. The site may be a regionally important refuge for the fish species characteristic of intermittent tropical streams. The aquatic beds are dense and varied, with a number of species being important food plants for water birds. It is probable that the site provides a refuge for water birds in times of drought. The tall riparian closed forest on a sandy terrace on the northern side of the junction is an unusual example of an uncommon vegetation type.
