The report: Reconnaissance Survey of the Middle Reaches of the Goulburn River Catchment was edited by Larry White and published in 1990 by the former Department of Conservation and Environment. It covers the middle reaches of the Goulburn River catchment from Mansfield in the east to the junction with Hughes Creek. It provides a broad inventory of land resources in 6 700 km2 of the catchment, including accounts of the history, climate, vegetation, geomorphology, mining, water resources, soils and soil conservation practices. In addition, broad scale interpretations of land capability for a range of land uses are also presented.
