Lower Suttor River Wetlands
This sub-division is better known than most of the Belyando-Suttor system but is still poorly known ecologically. It contains many large deep, persistently and highly turbid waterholes, including numerous channels and off-channel waterbodies. Condition is not well known, though some areas suffer the effects of overgrazing. Part of the lower river is inundated by Lake Dalrymple (Burdekin Falls Dam).
