A new water safety campaign is targeting migrants to raise awareness of the dangers of the Murray River.
Messages will start to be shown online in about a week as summer draws near.
The educational messages will be produced in three languages for multicultural residents.
"As we all know there has been some tragedy in that community with drownings in local inland waterways," Inspector Scott Russell said.
"The river is probably at its peak at the moment.
"It's quite dangerous.
"Whether you're a local or newly arrived in Australia or Albury-Wodonga, you need to know that the Murray River and other inland waterways are dangerous stretches of water."
Royal Lifesaving manager Mick Dasey said the Murray was the "most dangerous inland river system in Australia".
"We need to make sure people who do come and use the Murray River understand that," he said.
"By all means enjoy yourself, but make sure you do take the necessary precautions to have a safe and enjoyable time."
Mr Dasey said while he gets nervous every summer, he was concerned about tourists using the river once the border re-opens.

Albury and Border Rescue Squad captain Paul Marshall said a large number of people were expected to start using the river amid warm weather.
"Some of the people who are new to our country aren't used to the conditions we have here in Australia," he said.
"They haven't grown up with rivers and dams and pools in their backyard.
"They're not aware of the ever changing conditions and the strength of the current.
"We're trying to get that out to them, to put it out in different languages so they can understand and we're going to be out there to help them as much as we can."
