Murray River photos

Australia's longest river extends from the mountainous alpine areas in the far north-east of Victoria and flows through inland plains and irrigated farmland. Paddlesteamers used the river to transport goods during the second half of the 1800s, creating a number of busy river ports which today offer a historical insight into this once thriving industry.
