The WGCMA Region has a unique landscape consisting of rolling hills, extensive networks of rivers, streams and creeks, wetlands, red gum plains, mountain ranges, vast floodplains and coastal areas.
With a wide variety of issues to address, the WGCMA has developed regional programs that set the direction and priorities for the region. These then feed into geographic programs that are based on areas known as Catchment Ecosystems. These are areas based on catchment boundaries and contain publicly identifiable sub-regions that have iconic status.
Visit the WGCMA’s Catchment Ecosystems page for more information on our region.
