Glenelg River (Victoria)
The Glenelg River is a river in southwestern Victoria, Australia. The river starts in the Grampian Ranges and runs for 290 kilometres, making it the longest river in Victoria. A short stretch of the lower end winds through South Australia before returning to Victoria to enter the sea at Nelson. The Glenelg River is a central feature of the Lower Glenelg National Park.
Large amounts of water diverted from the upper reaches of the river for agricultural purposes, including irrigation and town water demands. This reduction in flow has had negative effects on river ecology.
