'Its waters are the lifeblood of orchards, farms, and vineyards on its banks, and of communities hundreds of miles away; it has been highway to the interior, promise of wealth to the pioneers, frontier between States in the years before Federation. The works of man have changed much of the Murray, destroying some of its natural beauty but sprinkling its banks with handsome towns and prosperous homesteads. The river and its people, its history and its largesse, blend into a heritage which is uniquely Australian.'
