Murray Darling Elevation

Coastal areas are generally the reference location for elevation maps, as height is measured from sea level. Inland from the coast the land surface generally increases such that increases are measured from zero at sea-level. Mountain regions are clearly identified by orange colours.

Elevation plays a key role in dictating the direction of flow in a river.
