Definitions used

The Galilee subregion is located entirely in Queensland (Figure 4), and is defined by the extent of the geological Galilee Basin (see Section 1.1.1 for further detail). The subregion spans an area of about 248,000 km2. It also also includes the headwaters of seven major surface drainage catchments (see Section 1.1.5 for further detail). It straddles the Great Dividing Range and extends westwards and northwards well into the Lake Eyre surface drainage catchment and Flinders-Norman rivers catchment.
