The Murrumbidgee River rises from the Great Dividing Range near Kiandra, then flows through the Australian Capital Territory where it turns inland as a part of the Murray-Darling basin. From the Burrinjuck Dam, the river emerges into the rolling hills of the Gundagai are, where it is then joined by the Tumut River.
The Murrumbidgee River is significant because it carries water from the Snowy Mountains Scheme to vast irrigation areas for the production of citrus, stone fruit, grapes and other food crops.
A canoe or kayak trip down one of NSW’s inland rivers enables you to enjoy the true beauty of these vast river systems.
There are many Crown Land reserves along the trail where you can camp overnight or stop for a well-earned lunch break and rest.
