URBAN RIVERS

Labor's commitment to urban rivers

Federal Labor is committed to healthy urban rivers and corridors. For healthy rivers, happy wildlife and clean oceans. Our rivers and corridors are the arteries of the natural environment.

For too long, our rivers, creeks and wetlands, particularly in urban areas, have been treated like industrial drains, rather than the vibrant, healthy and working river systems and green spaces that all Australians deserve.

People who live in our cities have a right to enjoy their environment. The Urban Rivers and Corridors Program is a new initiative that will engage urban communities, Indigenous rangers and local councils in river bank restoration and corridor creation. Below are some of the potential proposed projects.
