Tallow Creek Flood Study

The Tallow Creek catchment is located to the south of Byron Bay in New South Wales. The catchment consists of a steep to undulating upper catchment, which drains via three major creek systems through the residential suburbs of Baywood Chase and Byron Hills. These creek systems drain into an estuarine creek (Tallow Creek) formed in the sand dunes adjacent to the Pacific Ocean. Suffolk Park bounds the eastern edge of Tallow Creek. The catchment area of Tallow Creek is 450 hectares.
