A Study of the Land in the Catchment of the Avoca River

This report: A Study of the Land in the Catchment of the Avoca River. was prepared by M. S. Lorimer and J. N. Rowan of the former Soil Conservation Authority and was published in 1982. The survey is one of a series of multi-purpose surveys begun in 1952, designed to provide a broad-scale coverage of the State of Victoria. The purpose was to map, describe and evaluate the biophysical nature of the land to be used as basic information for planning conservation of the land under a variety of uses, and determining its most suitable use in the public interest. The information provides a basis for planning at the State or regional level, and also a systematic background for local investigations such as land capability assessment for specific uses.
