Where's Our Water?

All the animals along the Hunter River have noticed that there is less water to share around. So Kookaburra calls on his friends to come up with a plan to share the value of water with children and give them ways to save it. How will the animals help Timmy and Ella understand that water is precious and teach them to love our water?

Where’s Our Water? has been written for primary school students in the Lower Hunter region to teach them about the value of water as a precious resource and that it is everyone’s responsibility to care for it to ensure we have enough now and into the future. Hunter Water has collaborated with both the Awabakal and Worimi communities to create this new story that draws on their traditional wisdom and practices of caring for our land and waterways.

We hope that pride in our Indigenous cultures and an intrinsic desire to care for water is shared throughout our region’s children as result of reading and sharing this story.
