URI: http://environment.data.gov.au/def/ba/glossary/clarence-moreton-bioregion

The Clarence-Moreton bioregion is located in north-east NSW and south-east Queensland and adjoins the Northern Inland Catchments bioregion. Along with the towns of Casino, Lismore and Grafton, it contains the outskirts of the Queensland cities of Brisbane, Ipswich, Logan and Toowoomba. The bioregion contains large river systems (including the Clarence, Richmond and Logan-Albert rivers) and extensive wetlands, some of which are nationally important. Many of these wetlands are home to water-dependent plants and animals that are listed as rare or threatened under Queensland and Commonwealth legislation. The bioregion contains numerous national parks and forest reserves and includes sites of international importance for bird conservation. A large area of the bioregion is used for dryland farming and plantations and as grazing land for livestock. Irrigated agriculture takes up a comparatively small area. Groundwater is extracted for various uses but most commonly for livestock and agricultural purposes. The largest water reservoir in this bioregion is Lake Wivenhoe on the Brisbane River, which supplies Brisbane and its surrounds. The NSW part of the bioregion has smaller dams located in the upper Richmond river basin.
