Potential Land Use: Arable if extensive and flat, but more suited for fodder crops or improved pasture; irrigation might be considered but some form of artificial drainage would be necessary; levee drainage lines should be left as grasses waterways. Land Category: 3 and 4 with some 6 (levee drainage floors). Land unit 8d. Swamps, more or less permanent, either paperbark or freshwater mangrove with Eleocharis and Oryza. These areas should be considered as refuges for waterfowl or watering places for stock. Land Category: 7. Land unit 8e. All severely eroded areas associated with the major river alluvials. These are usually deep and active gully systems which require careful protection, particularly from stock using them for access to water. Land Category: 8. -40
