Lake Victoria is a naturally occurring shallow freshwater Lake, approximately 60 kilometres downstream of the Murray-Darling Junction in south-western New South Wales.

The present lake was formed in 1928 by the construction of a 52 km-long earthen embankment around the original depression and acts as a water-balance storage to ensure water entitlements to South Australia. It is also a significant cultural site for the local Aboriginal people.
