Smaller Catchments within the Landers Creek Catchment include:
This catchment has undergone a decrease in condition from relatively good (B) to relatively poor (C+), this change is the result of increased gullying/scalding within the catchment.
This creek is poorly known ecologically. The creeks are generally dry sandy channels with limited habitat availability although irrigation tailwater in the lowest reaches increases streamflow there. Condition is not well known though thought to be similar to adjoining sub-divisions.
