Centre for Freshwater Ecosystems

The Centre for Freshwater Ecosystems (CFE) brings together a wealth of expertise from many disciplines to understand and solve significant challenges to support the sustainable management of freshwater ecosystems.

Our work directly supports decision-making regarding maintenance and restoration of the long-term health of rivers, catchments, floodplains and wetlands and is founded on a long history of research under the auspices of the Murray-Darling Freshwater Research Centre.

Our regional location provide ready access tofield sites across the southern Murray-Darling Basin and a vital connection with local communities. We have well-established lab facilities in Albury-Wodonga and we benefit from strong links with the University's campuses in Melbourne, Bendigo and Shepparton, as well as many other collaborators.
