River Country was a collective until 2020 after a long history working to protect rivers and forests.
The Murray Darling Basin has been mismanaged and plundered for profit for far too long.
River Country has a proud history campaigning with Traditional Owners along the Murray River to protect over 250,000 ha of Red Gum Forests.
Today we have a basin-wide focus calling for the Murray Darling Basin Plan to be reviewed and strengthened to restore health to the Murray Darling once and for all.
River Country vision
- To see a flourishing Murray-Darling Basin where Traditional Owners enjoy sovereign rights to the country
- Protect public water so that rivers can run from source to sea
- No risky floodplain developments in local Red Gum forests, lakes and wetlands
- Stand in solidarity with Traditional Owners in their fight for sovereignty and co-management of their land and water
