Our waterways and beaches support our lifestyles and livelihoods. They provide unique opportunities for water-based and foreshore recreation, support our wellbeing and provide a sense of identity for our community.

Waterways and wetlands also support important local industries such as tourism, agriculture and commercial fisheries.

Our land use management influences the health of our waterways and beaches. To continue to support our lifestyles and livelihoods, we need to have an integrated management planning approach.

To do this, we plan to:

  • build our knowledge through research
  • support activities that improve instream and floodplain habitats
  • monitor the health of our waterways
  • partner with community, industry and State Government.
