Euston is a small town on the banks of the Murray River, southern New South Wales (NSW), Australia in Balranald Shire. The twin town of Robinvale is on the other side of the river in the state of Victoria. Euston belongs to the traditional lands of the Tati Tati Aboriginal people. At the 2006 census, Euston had a population of 462 people. Until the irrigation development at Robinvale, Euston was the main town in the area. A Post Office opened on 1 May 1852. It closed in 1853, then reopened in 1856.
The Murray River or River Murray is Australia's longest river at 2,508 kilometres in length. The Murray arises in the Australian Alps, draining the western side of Australia's highest mountains and, for most of its length, meanders across Australia's inland plains, forming the border between the states of New South Wales and Victoria as it flows to the northwest, before turning south for its final 500 kilometres into South Australia, reaching the ocean at Lake Alexandrina.
The photos of the Murray near Euston I post here are from my archive and are early ones that I took with a digital camera in April 1999. Since that time, I have not been using film and have been gradually upgrading to better cameras. However, even at that time I was impressed with the technology and I still like the type of image that digital technology offered in 1999!
