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 sets a theme for National Water Week.

The theme for 2024 is ‘Accelerating Action’.

It serves as a powerful rally cry for our community to address water's vital role in the current climate crisis. Together, we will spark a collective movement towards a sustainable water future, taking concrete steps to bring about enduring change. The community is invited to accelerate action this National Water Week and contribute to shaping a sustainable water future for generations to come, urging everyone to be part of this transformative movement.

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.
