The Latrobe, Thomson and Avon catchments contain some of Victoria’s most significant river systems. Located in the Gippsland region of Victoria, these three river systems form the total catchment of Lake Wellington, the western-most of the Gippsland lakes. The demands on these freshwater resources are considerable. Australia’s largest pulp and paper mill, most of the State’s power industry, much of Melbourne’s water supply and the State’s second largest irrigation district fall within their catchment boundaries.
This publication provides an overview of the environmental condition of the rivers and streams in the Latrobe, Thomson and Avon catchments EPA Victoria (Publication 831, 2002).
