    Abstract

    The Australian Alps national parks are a crucial source of water for South Eastern Australia. Water is fully or over-allocated for human consumption, resulting in the reallocation to improve the health of the Snowy River and the Murray–Darling Basin (MDB) rivers (Commonwealth of Australia, New South Wales and Victoria 2002; Prime Minister of Australia 2012). The value of the water from the Alps can be considered in terms of the critical ecosystem services they provide for Australia (Reid-Piko et al. 2010).
