River Basin Maps

Map of the basins and major rivers, including flow information can be found below. Other resources for river flows can be found official direct sources (links given below the map).

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. Some flow heights are estimates only.

No flow
Height where flow ceased was assumed to be zero if no historical data was found.
Poor flow
A level that is likely too low to kayak, with a flow under 2 Cumecs.
Low flow
A level that maybe paddlable? The flow was calculated to be under 10 Cumecs.
Good flow
A flow over 10 Cumecs.

MDBA Murray Darling System Overview
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 goto 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).
