Barron Catchment Map

Maps showing the boundaries and characteristics of the Barron River catchment. A feature of the catchment is the dense fine network of small streams. The Barron River itself originates on the upland ranges of the Atherton Tablelands at Mt Hypipamee National Park, at an altitude of about 1000m. Other small streams originate in rainforest and run through forest or farmland to meet the main stream of the Barron. Wetlands of national significance in the upper catchment include Lake Barrine, Lake Eacham, Lake Euramoo and the Crater Lakes.
