Sunraysia River Watch was created in 1992, and is a community ‘self-help’ program designed to protect the Murray River and its environment from pollution and degradation.

The group encourages locals and visitors alike to treat the river ‘like a friend,’ while also aiming to significantly improve the water quality of the river, reduce pollution and littering in the river and along the riverbank, reduce vandalism to the surrounding environment, improve the aesthetics of the river and its environment, improve boating operations and boat user responsibility and increase native fish population.

RSVPs for the AGM are essential for catering purposes, with more information available by contacting Margot Fowler on 0407 394 101
