Red clay banks along the river

Distance Table

Stores, distances & coordinates below are only approximations from using various maps and online tools, but should be accurate enough for the trip.

Coordinates will generally be at a takeout point or bridge for most locations. Various reports suggest views of some small towns could be obscured by the river banks, so some care needs to be taken while navigating down the river.

Distance Table

The distances were calculated by manually digitizing the river path from Bing aerial images in QGIS (WGS 84 / UTM Zone 55S).

1 Binjura is measured at Mittagang Crossing. Cooma is 5.2 km SES along Mittagang Rd
2 Canberra is measured from Cotter Road crossing. The easiest access to shops is likely from Point Hut Rd crossing, a 2.3 km walk. Point Hut Rd crossing is 22.7 km before Cotter Road Bridge, 101.7 km from Binjura.
3 Carrathool is 5.2 km north of the bridge along Carrathool Rd.
4 Maude Weir is is 300 m upstream of Maude
5 Boundary Bend Rest Area is one bend before Boundary Bend. Uncertain about river access from this rest area but would save 5.2 km.
6 Robinvale, VIC was measured at Murray Valley Hwy Bridge that separates this town from Euston, NSW, which is just across the river.

The measured distance between Jugiong and the Murray River was 1,143.3 km was greater than the recorded distance of 1,077.7 km from the GPS unit used by Rod Boswell and Christine Charles in 2000 albeit high flows for the first half of their trip may have allowed for a few shortcuts. ;)
