(river) Principal river of Australia, 2,575 km/1,600 mi long. It rises in the Australian Alps near Mount Kosciusko and flows W, forming the boundary between New South Wales and Victoria, and reaches the sea at Encounter Bay, South Australia. With its main tributary, the Darling, it is 3,750 km/2,330 mi long.
Its other tributaries include the Lachlan and the Murrumbidgee. The Dartmouth Dam (1979) in the Great Dividing Range supplies hydroelectric power and has drought-proofed the Murray River system, but irrigation (for grapes, citrus, and stone fruits) and navigation schemes have led to soil salinization.
