Dating back more than a hundred million years, the Murray River is the longest single river in Australia, measuring some 2,375 km. If combined with the tributaries of the Darling River, the Culgoa, Balonne and Condamine, the Murray River System totals 2,844 kms, making it Australia's longest waterway.

The River Murray rises below Mount Kosciusko in New South Wales, and meanders 1,721 km across the state until it crosses the borders of Victoria to South Australia. Although the Goulburn River is Victoria's longest river, the River Murray is South Australia's longest river at 683 km. As the driest state, South Australia gets more than half the water it uses from the River Murray.1

1 Australian Government Geoscience Australia: Longest Rivers.

The lengths of the 10 longest rivers in Australia were re-calculated in September 2008 by Geoscience Australia using data from the National Topographic Database. The calculations confirmed that Australia's longest single river is the River Murray at 2375 kilometres. However, if the longest tributaries of the Darling River, the Culgoa, Balonne and Condamine, are taken into account its total length increases to 2844 kilometres, making it Australia's longest waterway.
