National Water Week makes a splash across Australia in October each year, inspiring individuals, education providers, communities and organisations to work together to build community awareness and understanding of water-related issues.
This year’s theme ‘United by Water’ highlight the important role water plays in bringing individuals and communities together.
Water covers three-quarters of our planet and makes up two-thirds of our bodies. We thirst for it and bathe in it. It's used by communities, industry and agriculture for health and liveability, the environment, Aboriginal cultural access, manufacturing and production of food and other produce. Water is an essential resource needed for economic prosperity wherever you live.
