Cape River Wetlands
The condition of the Cape River sub-division is fairly typical of upper Burdekin rangelands. Although permanent waterbodies are not common, and the upper catchment has no notable ones, there are a few permanent waterbodies in the lower reaches both within the main channel and in anabranches. These are in generally good condition. This sub-division has been the subject of significant NHT investment in riparian fencing and management.
