Aboriginal community engagement
A comprehensive engagement and consultation program accompanied the release of the draft strategy. This included:
- face-to-face meetings
- online webinars
- formal submissions.
The table below shows the extent of Aboriginal engagement in all regions during the development of the regional water strategies. The locations were chosen considering the access to Aboriginal communities.
|Region||Number of engagement sessions|
|Far North Coast||17|
|Murray and Murrumbidgee||18|
We are sharing collected community and stakeholder submissions for all regions. The current overview of submissions are from public consultation phase 1, more submissions might be added in time.

The 'Cultural Snapshots' below summarise the key issues and ideas we heard during the first public consultation. They highlight how your feedback has informed the next steps in developing the draft regional water strategies. You can also learn more about this on our ‘what we heard’ pages per regions.
