National Water Week is celebrated during October each year across Australia.

To celebrate National Water Week, we organise free events, competitions and activities for school students and members of the community. Water Week celebrations help raise awareness of the need to value and conserve water as a precious resource that brings life and prosperity to our region.

A photo competition encourages students to learn more about water.
