Rivers are diverse in their physical character and behaviour. Different types of rivers have different processes and sensitivity to change. To manage rivers effectively, we need to understand the existing geomorphic condition of the river, its inherent fragility sensitivity to change and likelihood of recovery. This all requires a consistent method to characterise the types of rivers we are working with and how they function. The database is the largest and most comprehensive dataset of geomorphic river character and condition available in Australia.
This discusses the rivers and hydrography of the state of New South WalesAustralia. The principal topographic feature of New South Wales is the series of low highlands and plateaus called the Great Dividing Rangewhich extend from north to south roughly parallel to the coast of the Coral and Tasman seas of the South Pacific Ocean.
Most of the inland rivers eventually combine into the Murray-Darling network of riverswhich drains to the sea in South Australia.
The following rivers are the longest river systems, by length. Due to the relatively close proximity of the Great Dividing Range to the eastern coast of New South Wales, in general, the coastal rivers are short, navigable only in their lowest reaches, if at all, and subject to flooding in periods of high rainfall. The inland rivers have little water, are also subject to flooding, and their limited resources are extensively used for irrigation in the more arid inland agricultural districts of the State.
On all of the ificant inland rivers, large dams have been constructed to regulate the water flow, to facilitate irrigationand in some cases, to generate hydro-power. For administrative purposes, the rivers are generally grouped into four major catchments defined by their drainage basinand then a series of sub-catchments.

The following is a list of the coastal rivers in New South Wales, in order from north to south, grouped according to catchment and sub-catchments, from mouth to upper reaches, organised by tributary:. The inland-flowing rivers in New South Wales can be considered in two groups.
In the northern half of the state, a series of rivers rise on the western side of the Great Dividing Range. These rivers flow west and northwest and eventually combine into the Barwonwhich becomes the Darling River further west near Bourke.
The second group of inland-flowing rivers in NSW rise in the southern part of the state, sourced predominately from the western and southern slopes of the Snowy Mountains and the western slopes of the Great Dividing Range, and combine directly with the Murray Riverwhich forms the southern border of NSW with Victoria.
