ABC Wednesdays - M for Murrumbidgee


The Murrumbidgee is one of the River Murray's tributaries. This photo was taken just out of Canberra, about a hundred kilometres from its source in the Australian Alps. The Murrumbidgee's  total length is about 1600 kilometres. Murrumbidgee is an aboriginal word meaning big water.

I am posting this post from Canberra, Australia's capital, where we are on vacation at present.

I don't see anything in the picture to say that is Australia and not somewhere closer to home. I bet it is different close up.

Aboriginal words are very easy on the tongue, aren't they?

Enjoy your holiday!
