Australia: The Land Where Time Began

A biography of the Australian continent 

The Einasleigh Uplands Biogeographic Region 

The boundary between the sandstone of the Laura Basin to the north and the northern part of the metamorphic rocks of the Einasleigh Uplands region to the south, is the boundary between the Peninsula region and Einasleigh Uplands region. This region is characterised by a rugged upland terrain of complex geology. Around the Mitchell River there is an area of limestone karst country. Woodlands are sparser then the Peninsula biogeographical Region and the climate is much drier.
