The Murray Darling Association is a membership-based peak representative organisation representing local government and communities across the Murray Darling Basin. Our purpose is to provide effective representation of local government and communities at state and federal level in the management of Basin resources by:
• providing accurate, relevant and timely information,
• facilitating informed debate, and
• seeking to influence government policy
Membership of the Murray Darling Association is open to all local government and other entities within the Basin, and to individuals with an interest in ensuring a sustainable future for the Murray-Darling Basin. We welcome new members and their involvement in activities and meetings with us.
