Simplifying streamflow reporting

Analysis and evaluation of streamflow patterns over time is a vital component of the State of the Environment report by the Department of the Environment. The Bureau of Meteorology has now released a web visualisation tool that makes this task much easier.

Regional Water Information provides annual and monthly information on water resource condition, availability and use at various spatial scales compared to historical conditions. With 11 topics — including rainfall, evapotranspiration, soil moisture, run-off, streamflow, groundwater and water use — and 31 analysis types across various areas, over 350 datasets can be accessed.


Streamflow patterns can be generated in just a few simple steps. Statistics on the streamflow monitoring sites, in specific categories, time frames and areas, can be easily generated easily. These statistics can also be broken down according to flow categories.

Check out Regional Water Information at to explore the full range of information and download data for use in your own analyses.
