Map of the Murray–Darling Basin region within Australia. It shows the catchments that we provide data for, within the Basin area.
Each catchment on the map can be selected to display related information. This information can also be accessed using the Select a Basin area or catchment control above the map.
The map also displays markers for storages and river gauges across the Basin, and data for each. This data includes storage volume as a percentage of capacity (current and same time last year) and a current megalitre amount, and river gauge flows and heights. This information can also be found in the Storages and River gauges tabs within the catchment-specific information, when a catchment is selected.
The map also displays weather data – rainfall and soil moisture – as coloured overlays. This weather data cannot be accessed in any other way.
