The Murray Darling Association was founded in August 1944 as the Murray Valley Development League. We are an association of local government municipalities, community groups, businesses, individuals and agencies in New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, and Victoria with an interest in ensuring that the Murray Darling Basin continues as a viable and valuable asset for all Australians.
We provide a forum for Local Government and community participation in major natural resource and policy issues affecting the Murray-Darling Basin. We provide information, facilitates debate, identify needs and priorities, undertake projects and education initiatives, and promote research.
Since 1944, the Association has contributed to water conservation, decentralisation, tourism, the Snowy Scheme, catchment management, water quality, education, regional development, formation.
