NiE Rivers on the run

CARVING a path through the land from their headwaters to their mouth, rivers play a very important role and are key features in the Australian landscape.

Starting at the highest point in an area, rivers flow downstream, gaining more water from other sources such as streams, rivers, springs and rainfall, before emptying into a larger body of water, like an ocean, sea, or lake.

Rivers are usually described in terms of their catchment areas. This means that the entire river system - from its source, all its tributaries and down to its mouth.

On their journey, rivers pass through many different environments:- mountains, forests, wetlands, farmlands, cities and towns-  constantly changing and providing a much needed resource for all living things.
