National Water Week

Each year, a National Water Week theme is selected to engage and inspire the community, bringing water to the forefront of our minds as we focus on all involved with this precious resource. The 2023 National Water Week theme was United by Water and was held on 16 to 22 October 2023.

United by Water celebrates water's vital role in connecting us all. Water touches every aspect of development. It drives economic growth, supports healthy ecosystems, and is essential and fundamental for life. Our collaborations in water management continue to guide us in this integral space. #UnitedbyWater #NationalWaterWeek

Giant Water Hunt

In celebration of National Water Week this year, we hosted a city-wide Giant Water Hunt across Jezzine Barracks, Riverway and Elliot Springs Playground.

We encouraged the whole family to get out and head to one of these iconic Townsville locations and go on an augmented reality treasure hunt to learn the value of saving water.

Missed out on the city-wide hunt? Not to worry! We have a permanent Giant Water Hunt installed at the Water Smart Garden in Anderson Gardens (opposite Kokoda Pool entrance).

Help us build awareness in our community around the value of water and being water-smart. Everyone can be a water saver!
