In this paper we study uncharged, non-conformal and anisotropic systems with strong interactions using the gauge-gravity duality by considering Einstein-Quadratic-Axion-Dilaton action in five dimension. In fact we would like to gain insight into the influence of higher derivative gravity on the QCD system. At finite temperature, we obtain an anisotropic black brane solution to a 5D Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet-Axion-Dilaton system. The system has been investigated and the effect of the parameter of theory has been considered. The blackening function supports the thermodynamical phase transition between small/large and AdS/large black brane for suitable parameters. We also study transport and diffusion properties, and observe in particular that the butterfly velocity that characterizes both diffusion and growth of chaos transverse to the anisotropic direction saturates a constant value in the IR which can exceed the bound given by the conformal value. We also determine the imaginary part of the heavy quark potential in a strongly coupled plasma dual to Gauss-Bonnet gravity.
