Ashburton River, Australia
Amidst the hills and ranges in the northern parts of Western Australia, with a desertic climate, we find Ashburton River and its floodplains dominated by Acacia shrublands and grasslands that light up in red in this 100m false-colour PROBA-V image of late July 2015. The River flows north to northwestward to finally flow into the Indian Ocean near Onslow. In the image, it is clearly joined by several tributaries that flow in from the north to northeast, east and south. Paulsens Gold Mine is highlighted by the bright blue spot.
