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 are:

  • building our knowledge through research
  • supporting activities that improve instream and floodplain habitats
  • monitoring the health of our waterways
  • partnering with community, industry and State Government.
