The Gulf Savannah extends from the Great Dividing Range in the east, to the Northern Territory border in the west – covering around 186,000 sq kilometers. There are vast flat plains around the southern Gulf area stretching to the south. To the east and southwest of the region there are rising uplands. Savannah grasses, shrubs and trees along with a rich variety of wildlife provides a landscape which really is – amazing!

The southwest area of the Gulf region is heavily mineralized and is part of the north west mineral province. The Gulf’s land area can be compared to being approximately 80% the size of Victoria. There is an annual water run-off equivalent to almost 30% the national total – this is larger then the Murray Darling basin!

The role of these groups is to produce strategies for the management and protection of the bio-regions. Supporting this process at the catchment level, are catchment co-ordination and Landcare groups.
