General characteristics

The Bulloo river is an isolated drainage system in north-west New South Wales and south-west Queensland, and the Diamantina river is in south-west Queensland and north-east South Australia. These two widely separated localities are home to Grey Grasswren Amytornis barbatus (races barbatus and diamantina), which inhabits patches of seasonally swampy grassland and shrubland. The habitat does not appear to have been degraded by pastoralism, the main land-use, and is under no immediate threat (Garnett 1993).
