It’s time to chat – water! National Water Week is just around the corner and we want to get conversation flowing within households across our community.

Each October, National Water Week (21 – 27 October) makes a splash across Australia, inspiring individuals, communities and organisations to work together to build community awareness and understanding around water related topics and challenges. 

This year, council is joining the cause to empower the local community and promote this year’s theme - Water for me, water for all.

This theme encourages young people and the wider community to think about how we use water and how we can protect it so we have it in the future.

The Richmond River catchment is lucky enough to have great quality water but it’s easy to take this precious resource for granted. Understanding the importance of water will help save water and create better waterways for future generations.


Council is offering families who get talking about their water usage habits an incentive this Water Week. Families have the chance to win:

  • A double pass to Wet N Wild pass
  • Ten-ticket pass to Ballina Memorial Pool and Alstonville Aquatic Centre 
  • One-day ticket to Ballina Memorial Pool’s Waterslide.


To enter you just need to answer a few water usage questions – like how many litres it takes to fill an average bath? You must be a Ballina Shire resident to enter. Entries close Friday 2 November. See full terms and conditions below.
