The Murray-Darling Freshwater Research CentreThe MDFRC is a partnership between CSIRO and La Trobe University, with additional collaboration agreements with the Murray-Darling Basin Joint Governments and University of Canberra.
Celebrating 30 years in freshwater ecology research, established in 1986Our research focuses on the generation and communication of freshwater ecological knowledge of floodplain ecosystems in the Murray-Darling Basin, in particular providing advice and solutions to water managers to optimise their management decisions.
The Murray-Darling Freshwater Research Centre has research facilities located in Wodonga and Mildura, on the land of the Wiradjuri and Latje Latje peoples. We undertake research throughout the Murray-Darling Basin and acknowledge the traditional owners of this land and water. We pay respect to Elders past, present and future.
