What appears at first glace to be just another beautiful mountain stream is in fact the humble beginnings of Australia’s longest river, the Murray. In the pristine Australian Alps and only 40km from Australia’s highest mountain, Mount Kosciuszko, three small springs mark the source of this grand river. It’s here the Murray begins its massive 2508km journey to the ocean at Lake Alexandrina in South Australia.
Waking to the soft sound of rain hitting our tent we weren’t overly keen to drag ourselves out of bed, but we donned the wet weather gear and went out for a look anyway. The effort was totally worth it as the river was breathtakingly beautiful under the early morning diffused light. The nights soaking rain had really saturated the colours in the foliage and rocks. Under an umbrella, we set the gear up and patiently waited for a break in the rain. But it seems Mother Nature had other ideas! All morning the rain only just gave reprieve long enough for us to capture one single shot; but that’s all we needed. What a tranquil, pure and calming place…
