Murray River Channel

The Murray River Channel is the main artery of the river. Extending over 2,520 km north of Khancoban forming the New South Wales and Victorian border to Goolwa and the Coorong in South Australia. The channel links the forests, floodplains, wetlands and estuaries along the Murray River. It provides habitat for many native plants, fish and animals, while its banks support river red gum forests of high natural and cultural value.

The Murray River Channel relates to river flows, barriers to native fish migration and maintenance of channel stability.
