Adrian Koenen from Wooliana Tourist Park on the Daly River explains why the river is so important to his livelihood, and the health of the surrounding landscape.
Our rivers are the special places that make the Top End lifestyle happen. They’re where we fish, we boat, we relax and we enjoy the unique Territory experience. But our rivers are under threat from big business, who want to take huge amounts of water for large-scale operations like cotton. We don’t want to see what happened down south on the Murray Darling happen up here.
We need a different approach – one that works to keep our Territory rivers special. Let’s keep the Territory’s rivers flowing.
