Goulburn Murray Irrigation District and the Murray Darling Basin Plan
Water policy is the most critical aspect impacting on the viability of the Goulburn and Murray Valleys of northern Victoria, both from the perspective of balancing long-term health of our rivers and the economic activity associated with irrigated agriculture. The Murray Darling Basin Plan has led to significant change in the Goulburn Murray Irrigation District, and adaptive management towards the balance intended by the Plan creates challenges for future planning and investment.

A panel consisting of David McKenzie, valuer with Opteon and Co-Chair of the GMID Water Leadership Forum, Frank Fissler, who heads up the Goulburn Murray Water’s $2 billion irrigation renewal ‘Connections’ project, and Chris Norman, who as CEO of the Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority is responsible for the use of environmental water in the Goulburn River will discuss these issues.

3.30pm
Shepparton Art Museum and regional renewal through creativity
Art and culture have a unique role in regional communities, whether it be through musical groups, theatre or visual arts. Greater Shepparton is embarking on an audacious project to develop a significant art museum on the edge of the Goulburn River’s red gum forest. Housing a significant private collection of Australian indigenous art, and with a bold design by renowned architects Denton Corker Marshall, the Shepparton Art Museum sets a course toward economic, social and cultural renewal.

A panel consisting of Carrillo Gantner AO, Chairman of the Sidney Myer Fund and a passionate advocate and philanthropic supporter of the project and Rebecca Coates, Director of the Shepparton Art Museum, will discuss the project and its place in regional development through the arts.
