MUR­RAY RE­GION, VIC & NSW

Australian Geographic - - Geo Buzz -

Fer­tile soils, a Mediter­ranean cli­mate and an ex­ten­sive ir­ri­ga­tion sys­tem that makes use of the Mur­ray River all help make this a land of agri­cul­tural plenty. Small to medium-sized farms that an­nu­ally pro­duce 2.3 bil­lion litres of milk sup­ply cheese-pro­cess­ing fa­cil­i­ties through­out the re­gion, in­clud­ing a range of ar­ti­san cheese­mak­ers cre­at­ing gourmet cheeses in towns such as Coola­mon.
