The recognition of alternating flood- (FDRs) and drought-dominated regimes (DDRs) in coastal rivers of New South Wales has helped to explain some of the changes in channels and floodplains observed in more recent times. On these bases the aims of this paper are to predict channel and floodplain changes for two likely future scenarios: for the first a probable imminent shift back to a drought-dominated regime (DDR), the second based on the imposition of a greenhouse climate, first on a waning DDR and then on a waxing FDR. Secondary aims include some consideration of the problems of managing these two scenarios if and when they occur
