Wimmera River

The Wimmera River’s journey begins from Mt Cole and Pyrenees Ranges in the south-east and the Grampians in the south to terminal lakes including Lakes Hindmarsh and Lake Albacutya.

Wimmera River

  • The Wimmera River is the largest river in Victoria that does not flow into the ocean.
  • The Wimmera River suffers from salinity, weed and reed infestations, eutrophication and massively reduced flow and is considered to be in marginal to very poor condition.

People who love and depend on the Wimmera River have many memories and insights to share – of beautiful billabong areas, of the brightness of the blue sky, and of the specky Dimboola Rowing Regatta.
