The Murray–Darling Basin Authority publishes numerous research and technical reports, educational material and extensive information on the Basin for communities, governments, industry and students. 

The Publications store contains not only reports of the MDBA but also brochures and other communication items. 

These publications are available to download however, if you experience any difficulties with accessing any of these publications contact for an alternative format. 

You can explore our environmental and spatial data in the environmental data portal.
