CFS Region 3

Region 3 (Murraylands and Riverland) is a diverse region, covering 54 000 square kilometres. The Region´s agricultural activities vary from dry land cropping and grazing to large areas of irrigated fruit, wine and vegetables.

Apiarists are active in a number of park areas within the Region.

Tourism within the area continues to flourish, with an annual increase in houseboats and the potential for associated problems.

The number of vehicles passing through and visiting the Region contributes to the overall number of highly traumatic incidents, particularly on the Dukes Highway.

The increasing amount of chemicals being used in the area is creating ongoing problems with hazardous material incidents.
