Murray Catchment CMA

The Murray catchment in southern NSW covers an area of around 42,000 km2 across a range of landscapes from steep alpine slopes in the east, to riverine floodplains and grasslands in the west. Land and water resources within the Murray catchment support a range of agricultural enterprises including dryland cropping, irrigation, grazing and horticulture. The Murray River forms the NSW-Victorian border for 1,880 km and forms a major arm of the 300,000 square kilometer Murray-Darling Basin Find us here:
