Lower Fitzroy Catchment Story Map Journal 

The Lower Fitzroy Catchment Story Map Journal was prepared by the Queensland Government's Queensland Wetlands Program in collaboration with local partners. The map journal is best viewed using Chrome or Firefox.

Knowing how water moves in the landscape is fundamental to sustainably managing the catchment and the services it provides. The map journal describes the location, extent and values of the Lower Fitzroy Catchment. It also demonstrates the key features which influence water flow, including geology, topography, rainfall and runoff, natural features, human modifications and land uses.
