Southwest & The Murray/Australia

Introducing Southwest & The Murray

Between Sydney and Albury, a string of atmospheric old inland towns straddles the Hume Hwy, each of them with a claim to some kind of fame, be it bushrangers, drought, rich grazing land or old money.

Northwest of the highway, the land flattens out, becoming incrementally redder and drier. The Murray and Murrumbidgee Rivers that make up the Riverina district not only offer respite in a harsh landscape, but an income through farming centred on irrigation and a growing tourism industry based around food in places like Griffith.
