Map of the basins and major rivers, including flow information can be found below.
Other resources for river flows can be found in many of the official sources listed below.
Minimum flow is around 2 Cumecs and a good flow is considered to be above 10 Cumecs. The latter is my personal minimum.
Flows are estimated from the BOM river feeds that give river heights only and I used historical records to correlate these heights to the historical flows.
This is only a rough estimate as water downstream can slow the flow seen at the same height as a flood that is not being held up.
Some flow heights are estimates only.
Height where flow ceased was assumed to be zero if no historical data was found.
A level that is likely too low to kayak, with a flow under 2 Cumecs.
A level that may be paddlable? The flow was calculated to be under 10 Cumecs.
A flow over 10 Cumecs. Times two is 20 Cumecs and times five is 50 Cumecs.
An excellent instant view of the Murray Darling system. Includes tributaries such as the
Mitta Mitta, Ovens, Goulburn and Murrumbidgee rivers as well as others. This should be your go to resource if you are considering doing the Murray River!
The quality of the flows in the following sites are based on historical percentiles. Since the average flows from many inland rivers are fairly poor, look for high flows in the following maps (i.e. 80% or 90% above average flows).
