There is some dispute over this.

The Victoria River is published on the Australian Government Geoscience website as the longest, but the Katherine-Daly River figures indicate that this river is longer. The Victoria river is 510 km in length (unofficial), while the Katherine River 328 km (unofficial) combining with the Daly 361 km (unofficial) is considered by some to be a single river of 689 km.
