The Gippsland Basin bioregion considered in this assessment includes key parts of the geological Gippsland Basin which contain major coal resources. The bioregion’s northern boundary follows the surface geology expressions of the Haunted Hill and Sale Group aquifers which overlie and conceal the coal-bearing formations of the Gippsland Basin. It also includes the Gippsland Lakes in the south-east.
The Gippsland Basin bioregion includes parts of the two natural resource management regions: East Gippsland Catchment and West Gippsland Catchment. The West Gippsland Catchment Management Authority contains the Avon River Basin and all river basins further west within the bioregion. The East Gippsland Catchment Management Authority contains the Mitchell River Basin and all river basins further east within the bioregion.
