Murrumbidgee River

Murrumbidgee River

For most of its length the Murrumbidgee River is a sluggish, muddy thing; just another of the many narrow inland rivers that look impressive on a map but underwhelming in reality. Nearly all its water comes from the Snowies, and once the Murrumbidgee hits the plains it is essentially just an irrigation channel with more bends than usual. The further you follow it downstream the smaller it gets. But in its upper reaches it is a mighty stream.
