List Of Crossings Of The Murray River
The Murray River in south-eastern Australia has been a significant barrier to land-based travel and trade. This article lists and briefly describes all of the recognised crossing points.

The crossings are listed in order starting from the Murray Mouth and proceeding upstream.
