Goulburn River

The Goulburn River’s journey begins in the mountains near Woods Point and flowing over 550km to the Murray at Echuca.

Goulburn River

  • The Goulburn River is Victoria’s biggest river.
  • It supports billions of dollars worth of agricultural production.
  • It is home to threatened species such as the Crimson-spotted rainbow fish and the Great egret.
  • The demand for its water has taken a toll on the health of the river and its catchment, reducing native fish populations.

People who love and depend on the Goulburn River have many memories and insights to share – of magical picnic spots, of pelicans cruising its glassy surface, and how connecting people with nature in fact protects it.
