EXPERIENCE THE GREAT RIVER ROAD

Australia’s longest river

The Murray River (approximately 2,500 km) is the star attraction of the Great River Road. Flanked by national and state parks and river reserves, the River flows between the Snowy Mountains and Lake Hume and provides a perfect habitat for native animal and plant species.

The Murray River was named after Sir George Murray, the British Secretary of State for the colonies in 1830.

The Snowy Mountains Scheme

The Snowy Mountains Scheme was built to generate renewable hydro electricity and to provide additional water into the Murray and Murrumbidgee rivers for agricultural irrigation.

Between 1959 and 1974, the project involved construction of nine power stations, one pumping station, 16 major dams, 145kms of tunnels and 80km of aqueducts allowing 33 hydroelectric turbines to generate electricity.
