In South East Australia the Murray River, Australia's longest river starts it's journey from the Alpine Country near Australia's highest mountain, Mt Kosciuzko, meandering quietly to the flat country to the ocean in South Australia. The river is the border between two southern states, Victoria and New South Wales.
During the late 1800's farm produce and timber needed to be transported between towns along the Murray River. Steam powered Paddle steamers were the main form of transport until railway lines were built years later.
Paddle steamers are still running for tourists in the historic towns such as Echuca and Swan Hill.
Due to covid restrictions I could only photograph from the Victorian side of the river.
