About National Water Week

National Water Week makes a splash across Australia every third week in October, inspiring individuals, communities and organisations to build awareness around the value of water. Access to clean water is hugely important to our daily lives, and it’s down to all of us to protect our water environments and resources, and use water wisely.

Every year, the Australian Water Association set a theme for National Water Week.

The theme for 2023 is ‘United by Water’.

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.

The Victorian water educators acknowledge the traditional custodians of the lands and waterways on which we live, work and play. We respect and celebrate their culture and deep connection to Country.

Proudly supported by the Department of Energy, Environment and Climate Action.
