Hydrologic Reference Stations available
One of the Bureau’s newest water information products, Hydrologic Reference Stations, identifies Australian streamflow trends and detects long-term variability and change in streamflow.
Search a national network of hydrologic reference stations from a single website and view or download comprehensive streamflow information for a specific location. You can view streamflow data as an annual, seasonal, monthly or daily timeseries and examine the long-term trend analysis for the different stations.
The Hydrologic Reference Stations product represents well-maintained river gauges of long, high quality streamflow records managed by Australian, and State and Territory water agencies. The stations can be used for long-term and seasonal prediction of water availability.
Spread across contrasting hydro-climatic regions, the network includes unregulated streamflow stations with minimal impacts of water resource development and land use change in the catchments.
