5.7.1 Modern floodplains

The River Murray floodplains to the east and north-east of Hattah are partially covered by dunes blown in from the west. Dune alignment varies from east to west and from north-east to south-west. Reddish-yellow sands occur on the dunes and narrow swales, with vegetation and erosion susceptibility similar to those in unit 5.1.1. The broader flats have grey clay soils similar to those in 5.7.1.
