Morning on the Murrumbidgee River

by | Mar 19, 2015 | Australia

The Murrumbidgee is Australia’s second longest river, and is home to important eco-systems both above and below it’s flowing waters. Along the banks of the Murrumbidgee, forests of large River Red Gum trees are a haven for wildlife, and provide vital nesting hollows for numerous bird and mammal species.

This recording was made on the banks of the Murrumbidgee and captures the relaxing sounds of the river flowing to a backdrop of birdsong. Occasionally you can hear the rubbing of branches of a dead tree snagged in the water.
