This dataset is described in Wakelin-King, G. A. (in press 2022). Landscapes of the Lake Eyre Basin: the catchment-scale context that creates fluvial diversity. Transactions of the Royal Society of South Australia. The paper provides the first integrated overview of the Lake Eyre Basin's geomorphology, and is the first whole-of-catchment description of any of its rivers. The information is intended to support the work of land managers and ecologists, by providing a process-based look at the landscapes that support habitat. The landscape zones are designed to be compatible with the regional context stage of a River Styles analysis.

The dataset divides the Lake Eyre Basin into nine landscape zones, based on the elements that govern form and processes of the surface waters. They are: Uplands, Rocky Fringe, Western Rivers, Northern Plains, Central Plains, Channel Country-Vertic Downs, Channel Country-Stony Domes, Lakes & Dunes, Mega-lakes.
