Spectacular natural environment of the Southern Gulf Region ranges
The spectacular natural environment of the Southern Gulf Region ranges from eucalyptus woodlands in inland areas through to lowland coastal plains, pristine wild rivers and seasonal and permanent wetlands to the rich marine resources of the Gulf of Carpentaria.
There is no disputing the natural beauty of our traditional country. From the ocean to the sandstone escarpments, the saltpans to the untamed rivers there are thousands of critters and plants that call our country home.
