Summary Salinisation of aquifers is an issue of great concern in the Glenelg-Hopkins region. The GlenelgHopkins region is located in south-west Victoria, south of the Great Dividing Range and covers 2.6 million hectares. The area receives an annual average rainfall of 500-910 mm and experiences a Mediterranean climate, with hot, dry summers and cold wet winters and has varied geology and soil types. Terrain characteristics, such as soil type, geology, depth-to-water table, land use and topography have been integrated into a Geographic Information System (GIS). A geostatistical approach, including the use of multiple linear regression is used to analyse the spatial variability of the relationships between aquifer salinity and terrain characteristics across the entire region. Results from this study should greatly improve knowledge of aquifer salinisation across the region. It is expected that this work will enable managers to determine the most appropriate mitigating measures for each specific area affected.
