More than just a river

 

Journey down Australia's longest rivers, the Darling and the Murray. Catch a glimpse of their past, present and future through the lives and stories of the people who live among them.

The River Murray, in particular, is much more than just a river. It plays a central part in the lives of many Australians. People depend on it for their food and water, culture, traditions, livelihood, leisure, as a natural landscape and a place of great beauty.

However, the River Murray is in trouble. Listen to the different opinions of people along the river and discover their shared passion for finding ways to protect its future.

For me, the Murray will always mean the Coorong, and the Coorong means Storm Boy. Enjoy!
