Flood plain. This is defined as an alluvial plain characterised by frequent active erosion and aggradation by channelled or over-bank stream flow.
Latrobe River near Longford.
|The original vegetation has been described as riverine scrubs and swamps (Lunt, 1997). Most of the area has been cleared of red gum (Eucalyptus tereticornis), although some areas along the lower part of the river appear to be naturally treeless (Drake and Poutsma, 1956).|
