Riverbanks are where the salties hang out, so yes.

Out of all the countries of the world, I'd reckon Australia would be under-represented on a per capita basis for riverbank deaths. Most of the joint is pretty dry for a start, fewer rivers than average. But also generally slow-flowing, particularly in the southern half of the nation other than a few small mountainous bits. No rivers are "safe", anyone can get caught in tree branches or similar which is below the water and riverbanks can collapse too, but statistically I'm sure it's a much bigger issue in many other nations than here.

It's not actually mud that lines Australian rivers. It's the rotting corpses of others who have attempted to cross.
