The Murray River is a spectacular and diverse landscape. As it winds through south-eastern Australia, it’s expanse of ancient and diverse landscapes showcase a layered tapestry of colours, textures and experiences.

Starting up near the Snowy Mountains of New South Wales and Victoria our aerial journey takes us from Khancoban at the base of the Kosciusko National Park along the stunning Upper Murray of picturesque farmlands and postcard riverscapes and vistas. Passing through Albury and Wodonga, the mountains and hills give way to the mostly flat terrain and farmland where the rushing waters have carved steep cliff channels and fed vast river red gum forests.

The Murray’s course then begins it’s slow, winding journey through the Mallee and outback from the remote semi-arid landscape between Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia. You see the meandering backwaters of the Riverland, the inspiring carved golden fossilised cliffs of the Murraylands and out to the expanse of lakes Alexandrina and Albert, where it spills into the Coorong, Murray Mouth and finally the Southern Ocean.

The aerial landscape photography highlights the region’s lush farmlands with extensive vines, orchards and agriculture which are fed by the Murray’s valuable waters. When the high river came in late 2016 I’ve captured the powerful beauty of a fast flowing river system where the river’s banks were broken and the floodplains enjoyed the glorious and vital benefits of those waters.

The images show the river’s normally dry floodplains covered in water through the Sunraysia and Riverland. The high river brought major challenges for the river communities, however the vast inland oceans created environmental benefits for birdlife, flora, fauna, the old River Red Gums and Black Box trees that will be felt for years. I was grateful to have the drone to capture these images and share the unique perspective.

Welcome to the Murray River from above. A book many years in the making, where I hope you’ll love the journey and beauty of the river’s enchanting river landscapes from the air. An ancient backdrop of red gum forests, mountain vistas, eroded cliffs, mirrored waters and vibrant colours. Deep orange desert landscapes, haunting flooded gums, the Mallee’s aridness, the vast Coorong and intricate authentic Australian communities, their culture and history...where the river’s thread of life and beauty becomes self evident through this stunning aerial book.

Best wishes, Shane Strudwick
