The characterisation of input data errors suggests that having a denser network of official Bureau of Meteorology stations recording precipitation is essential for improved water-related modelling in the Galilee subregion.

Based on the coal resource development pathway, the coal resource development projects most likely to begin production in the next five to ten years all lie within the Belyando river basin, which comprises a part of the Burdekin river basin (see Section 2.5.2 in companion product 2.5 for the Galilee subregion (Karim et al., 2018)). Therefore if further climatic data were collected in the subregion, increasing the density of observations in the Burdekin river basin should be treated as a priority. As coal resource development continues, rain gauges installed by industry may represent an important addition to the existing network.
