Locals celebrate as waters of Murray-Darling rivers join for first time in two years – video


In a milestone for drought-stricken communities in New South Wales, the waters of the Murray River and the Darling River in NSW have joined for the first time in two years, prompting celebrations among residents of affected towns. The Murray and Darling rivers’ true meeting place is in the town of Wentworth. Its deputy mayor, Tim Elstone, said the water still had about 70km to run until it met the Murray. “It’s not reached all the way through yet – we’ll expect it Thursday or Friday – but we’re all happy, no worries about that.”
