Upper Murray Photography
The twin towns of Albury–Wodonga staddles the Victorian/New South Wales border with the mighty Murray River (Australia's longest river) separating the two.
Combined, the two centres are home to over 100,000 residents and services the rich agricultural area spanning the upper Murray and the Riverina.
The River Murray is Australia's longest river, running a course of 2,500 km from near Mount Kosciuszko in the Australian Alps to the Southern Ocean at Goolwa, in South Australia. The catchment description of the River Murray covers three sections — upper, central, and lower.
The upper River Murray catchment takes in the headwaters of the Murray and its many tributaries extending about 300 km to the Hume Dam. Located in New South Wales and Victoria, the catchment covers about 2% of the area of the Basin. Still, it provides about 17% of the water.
