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.

Explore Your Backyard - National Water Week Online Festival 

Explore Your Backyard is an online festival celebrating and nurturing the connection to Country and water during National Water Week, 18-24 October 2021.

Put your gardening gloves on, fill up that watering can, and Explore Your Backyard during National Water Week! 

 

National Water Week - Poster Competiton
