The twin towns of Albury–Wodonga staddles the Victorian/New South Wales border with the mighty Murray River (Australia's longest river) separating the two.

The twin towns of Albury–Wodonga staddles the Victorian/New South Wales border with the mighty Murray River (Australia's longest river) separating the two.

The River Murray is Australia's longest river, running a course of 2,500 km from near Mount Kosciuszko in the Australian Alps to the Southern Ocean at Goolwa, in South Australia. The catchment description of the River Murray covers three sections — upper, central, and lower.

The upper River Murray catchment takes in the headwaters of the Murray and its many tributaries extending about 300 km to the Hume Dam. Located in New South Wales and Victoria, the catchment covers about 2% of the area of the Basin. Still, it provides about 17% of the water.

It is a beautiful opportunity for a professional photographer to visit, experience, and photograph parts of Outback Australia then produce Australian photography prints focusing on the outback!

Lake Hume

Lake Hume, the 20,000-hectare body of water that resulted from the damming of the Mitta Mitta and Murray river near Albury, was a project that took seven years to build. When finished in 1936, it was the largest dam in the southern hemisphere and one of the biggest in the world.

It is an understatement that refers to Lake Hume as a large body of water as water retained upstream through the Murray and Mitta Mitta rivers stretches over 40 kilometres. It is a haven for water sports, fishing, and camping.

As early as the 1860's, landholders of the Riverina had discussed flood mitigation options for the Upper Murray River. But it wasn't until the early 1900s that work began on a solution to better manage the seasonal flows of the Murray and Mitta Mitta rivers.

In 1919, work started damming the Murray River just downstream from its junction with the Mitta Mitta. The Hume dam, completed in 1936, was the biggest in the southern hemisphere. The resultant reservoir retained water extending 40 km upstream from the dam and covered 20,000+ hectares.

Designed to hold 1,500 Gigalitres, Lake Hume's capacity was doubled in the late 1950s to capitalize on the increased flow resulting from the Snowy Hydro Scheme; the increase was primarily due to the tunnelled diversion Snowy River to the western side of the Great Dividing Range.

Lake Hume, named in honour of the explorer Hamilton Hume, is currently above 90% capacity. While it may look good, it is considered low... but a lot better than the <10% of a few years back.
