The Barwon River, northern New South Wales, flows through semi-arid alluvial plains with a gradient of 5 x 10⁻⁵ . Its discharges are highly variable and irregular, varying between 0 to 1,500 m³s⁻¹ . The system is essentially anabranching with a series of highly sinuous, deep and narrow trunk streams.
