3 river photos for you today. As I've mentioned previously the Murray River marks the border between the states of New South Wales and Victoria. The river starts in the high country of both states well to the east and much of the water in the river comes from snow melt (and yes - it does snow in parts of Australia including where I live - there is snow forecast for today!) Much of the water is used for irrigation for industries such as cotton, rice, orchard fruits and vineyards.
These photos are from within the Murray River National Park, the main one with a couple of ducks as a bonus.
In the WS is a photo looking straight across the river to a very dense River Red Gum forest in Victoria.
The other WS shows what is actually an anabranch of the Murray River, the Edward River. An anabranch is where a river splits in 2 with the branch river eventually flowing back into the main river. The Edward River takes water to irrigation areas to the north of the Murray.
