Based on the remote sensing iTRARC analysis this catchment has undergone a large decline in condition over the last 30 years. In the 1970s the catchment was in relatively good (B) condition, but by 2004 had dropped to very poor (D) condition. This drop in condition was primarily due to extensive clearing of the floodplain, including floodplain forests. The field survey results for this catchment also indicate very poor riparian zone conditions. However additional sites would be required to provide a better overview of on-ground conditions.
This sub-division is poorly known ecologically. The creeks are generally dry with limited habitat availability, though some waterholes are present. Condition is not well known though thought to be typical of sub-divisions in this area.
