Saving Water


"Water, water everywhere - and not a drop to drink."

While The Borough of Queenscliffe is surrounded with water, saving and reserving drinking water is still a major priority. Water is one of our most valuable resources on this planet, and living in a drought prone country means we need to work hard on conserving it.
