Wild rivers are rivers that haven't been changed by people. They don't have dams built on them and they flow along their natural courses. Many of Australia's wild rivers flow through remote areas of wilderness or the outback.
Find out about several of Australia's wild rivers, the abundance of life they support and the ways we protect them in Wild Rivers.
Suitable for 7-12 year olds.
Australia has a vast array of rivers, some that support large communities, even Capital cities, and have been changed over time by humans needing irrigation for agriculture, drinking water, and water for industry and recreation. Many other rivers are remote and wild, and support abundant wildlife and have changed little in centuries. Many Australian rivers are dry for most of the year and rely on flooding rains to run at all. Find out the characteristics of these different rivers, where they flow, their history of use and the environmental impacts that they face today.
