River Country

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
