What do you love most about your waterways?

  • Kayaking with the family?
  • A picnic by the river with your friends?
  • Getting out to experience nature and wildlife?

We want to know how Victorian’s use their waterways and what they value about them making sure we are putting Victorian’s needs first.

The My Victorian Waterway survey is designed for any Victorian who visits a waterway. This survey will build on data collected in a previous My Victorian Waterway Survey (2009) to identify trends in waterway use, perceptions, and knowledge over time. We have used the responses from the last survey to inform government policy, decision-making and investments.

Your responses will help us understand what the community’s vision is for how waterways are managed – now and into the future.

The survey is available in seven languages – English, Chinese (simplified), Chinese (traditional), Hindi, Punjabi, Arabic and Vietnamese.

We invite you to take part in the My Victorian Waterway Survey to have your say.

The survey should take only 10 minutes to complete and will be open from 21 March to 17 April 2022
