The Murray region straddles southern New South Wales, northern Victoria and south-eastern South Australia and represents 19.5 percent of the total area of the MDB.
The region is based around the Murray River and lower Darling River below Menindee and extends the full length of the Murray River to the Southern Ocean. It represents 19.5 per cent of the total area of the Murray-Darling Basin (MDB).
The region has a population of around 309 000 people concentrated in the centres of Albury-Wodonga, Echuca, Swan Hill, Mildura, Renmark, Murray Bridge and Goolwa.
The region includes some large and important wetlands along the Murray River, the lower Darling River, the Great Darling Anabranch and the Edward Wakool system.
