Abstract

The Murray-Darling Basin is Australia’s largest catchment covering over one million square kilometres and draining water from five separate states and territories. Despite receiving little water, the Murray-Darling Basin supports at least 40% of Australia’s agricultural production, a population of over 2 million people and is one of Australia’s most important natural resources. Such a degree of development has led irrigation to be the largest user of water in the Murray-Darling Basin.
