Each year, National Water Week makes a splash across Australia, inspiring individuals, education providers, communities and organisations to work together to build community awareness and understanding of water-related issues.

This year's National Water Week theme is 'Water - the Heart of our Culture'

This theme encourages young people to explore how water shapes our everyday lives through recreational activities, the natural world and our community values.

We will be inviting primary schools across our region to participate in a poster competition. If you would like more information, please contact us.
