Goulburn Environmental Flows Story

The Goulburn River is known by several names as it travels first through Taungurung country in the hilly upper and middle reaches.

The Goulburn River is known by several names as it travels first through Taungurung country in the hilly upper and middle reaches. Here, the river is called Waring.

As the river meanders downstream of Murchison and into the northern flatlands, the river winds through Yorta Yorta country. Here the river is called Kaiela, meaning 'father of waters'. Eventually, the river flows to a confluence with the River Murray near Echuca. This confluence of rivers is known as Koninner.

This story will follow an environmental flow as it travels through Waring/Kaiela. As we journey along the river throughout this story, we will use Waring to describe the river when on Taungurung country, and Kaiela to describe the river when on Yorta Yorta country.
