Farms, Rivers & Markets: A whole of system approach to doing more with less - M/BUS/296
The Broken River has a catchment area of approximately 389km2 (Goulburn-Murray Water 2007). Beginning in the Wellington-Tolmie highlands on the northern side of the Great Dividing Range in north-east Victoria it flows in a north-westerly direction to its confluence with the Goulburn River near Shepparton (Cottingham et. al. 2001) The main tributaries of the Broken River are Holland’s Creek, Ryan’s Creek and Lima East Creek. The upper reaches have high gradients, but lower reaches of the Broken River meander across a low-gradient floodplain (Strom 1962).
