  STS059-L06-013 The Darling (Barwon) River, New South Wales, Australia April 1994
The Darling River Basin is visible in this unique, low-oblique, southwest-looking photograph. The Darling River, the longest river in Australia and the major tributary to Australia's principal river, the Murray, is approximately 1700 miles (2730 kilometers) long and is an important source of water for irrigated agricultural crop production in the southeast region of Australia. This photograph captures a portion of the Darling as it flows southwest from Bourke through Wilcannia. The river continues to Wentworth where it enters the Murray, which eventually flows into Lake Alexandrina.
