Limited tickets remain for River reflections – Narrabri


The Murray-Darling Basin Authority’s annual water conference River reflections is on in Narrabri on 14-15 June, and the final program is now available.

The 2-day forum is a showcase of the communities, industries and ideas in water management and will include an address by MDBA Chair Sir Angus Houston.

MDBA Chief Executive Andrew McConville said River reflections is an opportunity to collaborate and network about growing a sustainable Basin.

“It’s an event for everybody – a genuine opportunity to connect with those who are managing water in the national interest and to listen and learn from community members and industries whose lifeblood is the river system,” Mr McConville said.

“We’ll be spotlighting the diverse northern Basin communities, including how one Boggabri farmer is making the most of rainfall in a drying climate, and the evolution of the Trangie Nevertire Irrigation Scheme (TNIS) which now serves 33 farms.

“We’re also excited to have freshwater ecologist Professor N. LeRoy Poff out from the United States. He will bring an international perspective to the conversation about freshwater sustainability at the basin scale under the challenge of climate change, comparing his experience of the Colorado Basin and the Murray-Darling Basin.”

Limited in-person tickets remain for the conference at Narrabri’s River Crossing Theatre on Wednesday 14 June and Thursday 15 June 2023.

Live streaming is available for most sessions free of charge for those who cannot attend in person.
