Waterkeepers Australia inspires Australians to restore and keep our waterways healthy. The organisation acts like a network of waterway action groups, providing Waterkeeper member programs with the tools, processes, inspiration and profile to help them do their job.

The power of a nationally connected community of Waterkeepers is far greater than individuals or stand alone groups. There are Waterkeeper programs in Queensland, New South Wales, South Australia and Victoria.
