You'll learn about the environment, river management and other issues that impact this important waterway.

The Murray River in Victoria is unique in the world, being one of the few major rivers where the public can freely and openly access the bank along its entire length. Along the length of Murray River in Victoria, a strip of land approximately 60m (or 3 chains) in width was permanently reserved for public purposes in 1881. The 1989 Land Conservation Council Mallee Area Review classified the majority of this public land as Murray River Reserve, to be managed to protect its natural and scenic values, conserve flora and fauna, protect sites of archaeological, cultural and historical importance, allow flood mitigation, protect stream banks from erosion and provide opportunities for informal recreation.

In the Mildura area the majority of the public purposes reserve along the Murray River is managed by Mildura Rural City Council (MRCC) under Committee of Management.

Committees of Management receive their powers under the Crown Land (Reserves) Act 1978.  These powers enable the Committee to manage and develop reserves, enter leasing and licensing arrangements, and enforce regulations.

Mildura Rural City Council manages the riverfront reserves under a Committee of Management arrangement.  The main guiding principle in managing the reserves is that public land is for the use and enjoyment of all. Public use needs to be balanced with protecting and maintaining the natural features and assets of the reserves.
