big water, big future
Water has been central to the Murrumbidgee’s growth over the past century. It is one of the most productive regions in Australia as an important food bowl, international exporter and burgeoning tourism industry.
Managing the region’s precious water resource in a sustainable way and protecting the area’s river and ecosystems has been an important focus for the irrigation industry that has flourished since the early 1900s. This ensures the area will continue to thrive and support Australia’s economy into the future.
