The mighty Murray River is Australia's most important inland waterway, flowing from the mountains of the Great Dividing Range in north-east VIC to Encounter Bay in SA, a distance of some 2500 km. For much of its route it forms the border between VIC and NSW.
Echuca was Australia's leading inland port and the Murray an antipodean Mississippi, with paddle-steamers and riverboats carrying supplies between remote sheep stations, homesteads and the thriving river towns. Many of the river towns, particularly Echuca, have reminders of the Murray's colourful past, including preserved paddle-steamers, old buildings and museums.
