Land resource assessment has been undertaken in the Lake Hume catchment over an area formerly in the Shire of Tallangatta and is now incorporated within the Shire of Towong. The aim was to provide an inventory of land types and an understanding of their inherent land processes as a basis for sound land use and land management decisions. The study 'Land Resource Assessment in the Western Part of the Shire of Towong - Covering the Former Shire of Tallangatta' was carried out by the former Centre for Land Protection Research in July 1999, by R Hook and D Rees.
