State of the River

The last 10 years in the Riverland have seen some interesting times with a long drought period finally being broken by two successive high rivers between 2010-2012.
River activities including houseboating have always been wonderful even during the drought with water levels being regulated by the lock system at pool level.
Currently the Murray is looking the best it has in years. River redgums have had a long awaited drink and the birdlife in particular is prolific.
