A colonial history of the River Murray dispute

Abstract:
This article examines the history of the dispute over the sharing of the waters of the River Murray between the colonies, with particular emphasis on the period from the mid-1880s to the mid-1890s. I argue that this period – in the lead up to the Australasian Federal Conventions of the 1890s – shaped the Convention debates, which in turn influenced the drafting of the Australian Constitution and the way in which the issue of the sharing of the waters of the River Murray between the States has been dealt with since Federation.
