The majestic Murray River forms the southern border of the Murray Shire for three hundred (300) kilometres. The shire is almost totally surrounded by the Murray River and its tributaries. The Edward River system to the north east and the Wakool River to the north west are important features. The Gulpa Creek is another important waterway which leaves the Murray and flows past Mathoura.
