East Gippsland:
has gently undulating terraces flanked by coastal plains, dunefields and inlets. A complex of Palaeozoic and Cainozoic deposits predominantly of granite, sands, marine sediments and beach deposits giving rise to yellow texture contrast soils (Kurosols and Chromosols) on the terraces, leached sands (Podosols and Tenosols) of the coastal plains and dunes, friable earths and texture contrast soils (Dermosols, Kurosols and Hydrosols) along the floodplains and valleys. Rainfall is spread fairly evenly throughout the year, with the greatest rainfall in November and the lowest in August. The majority of the southern section of the East Gippsland Lowlands bioregion adjoins the Gippsland Lakes or the ocean. High intensity rains at any time can cause flooding in the lower reaches of the creeks and rivers.
