National Water Week

Busselton has some of the most beautiful waterways in Australia and we never miss the opportunity to celebrate our precious resources and ask everyone to get involved.

That’s why we plan a special event to mark national water week in October each year.

National Water Week is an opportunity for the whole of Australia to come together to take action to protect our vital water sources and to celebrate the innovation and achievements in water that underpin our nation’s sustainability and economic prosperity.

National Water Week runs from 15-21 October, 2017.

To celebrate National Water Week 2017 Busselton Water hosted a ‘Canvas your Culture’ art competition and exhibition to showcase local students’ art inspired by the theme ‘Water – the Heart of our Culture.’

Class groups from seven primary and five high schools across the region worked for four weeks on their masterpieces which were later displayed at the Railway House (Busselton Visitor Centre).

The local community then voted for their favourite pieces via Facebook, with the winners – Year 6 at West Busselton Primary School and Year 11 Visual Arts students from Busselton Senior High School – each receiving $500 for their schools.

Congratulations to everyone who entered for their fantastic efforts which have now added a pop of colour to the Busselton Water office.
