Murray and Riverina

Moving westward from the Kosciuszko National Park and the Snowy Mountains, the mountain foothills meet the rich ancient volcanic plains of the Riverina. This area is defined by two rivers, the Murrumbidgee and the Murray, both of which originate in the Kosciuszko National Park and provide much of the irrigation for the towns, cities and agriculture along their course. After leaving the national park, the Murray River provides the boundary between New South Wales and Victoria and is joined by the Murrumbidgee before passing through the Mildura district and into South Australia.

The Riverina is one of Australia’s food bowls, famous for its citrus and wine production. West are a series of river towns, some with their twin townships on either side of the Murray and often having their origins in the river trade in the days of the paddle steamers.To the north and above this small band of cities and towns hugging the Murray is the New South Wales outback.
