Myall Lakes are on the east coast of Australia in New South Wales.
There are four major basins in Myall Lakes:
that have restricted connections.
- Bombah Broadwater
- Two Mile Lake
- Boolambayte Lake
- Myall Lake
Bombah Broadwater is connected to the ocean by
Lower Myall River (LMR) --- a narrow channel about 24 km long.
Upper Myall River (UMR) drains into Bombah Broadwater.
Myall Lakes have many unique hydrodynamic features and
this results in the ecology of Myall Lakes being
distinct from other lakes in coastal New South Wales.
- 60% of the catchment drains into Bombah Broadwater,
- 30% into Boolambayte Creek,
- 10% into Myall Lake.
