The Upper Murrumbidgee Demonstration Reach is approximately 100 km long and runs from Bredbo in NSW to Casuarina Sands in the ACT. Roughly half its length lies in NSW and half in the ACT. Water in the reach is used for ecological, rural, urban and recreational purposes. The demonstration reach has several major tributaries ‑ the Bredbo, Gudgenby, Cotter and Paddy's Rivers; and Tuggeranong Creek. It also has instream structures at Angle Crossing and Point Hut Crossing. The Upper Murrumbidgee Demonstration Reach is part of the headwaters of the Murrumbidgee River, which is one of the longest rivers in the Murray-Darling Basin. It provides water to Australia’s largest inland city, Canberra, and is a valuable source of water for agricultural practices.
