can anyone recommend what different levels on the murray gates are suitable for what craft - we have kayaks, sporties and 12 foot and 14foot rafts as options -

also keen to confirm what gauge people go off, Ive heard about this plus .35 from biggara - can anyone confirm this - I am keen to do a lower water summer trip - but don't want to go too low!

Hi Matty

Been a while since i was running trips down the Murray.

But this is what i remember.

Biggara gauge minimum .65 for 11 foot rafts and sporties
.8 above metre you could run 12.6ers.
above 1 metre you could 14 footers from memory.
