From the saltwater Country of Rubibi / Broome and Mandingalbay Yundinji / the wet tropics and Great Barrier Reef to the freshwater Country of Narrm / Melbourne, Meeanjin / Brisbane and the UNESCO World Heritage Budj Bim cultural landscape / Lake Condah, Making Waves brings you water stories from across Australia. Making Waves amplifies the lesser heard perpectives of First Nations people, communities and water practitioners. We hear about connections to the places we live, work and love from around this diverse country. And we hear calls to action about how we as a nation can better manage water.
Making Waves is an independent podcast series seeking to amplify lesser heard perspectives on water. For First Nations People, water is a sacred source of life. The rivers are the veins of Country, carrying water to sustain all parts of our landscape. The wetlands are the kidneys, filtering the water as it passes through the land. At the most fundamental level clean water is a basic need for healthy humans, animals, plants and aquatic environments. There are so many interesting (and sometimes competing) demands for water. This podcast explores water from a range of diverse perspectives - amplifying lesser heard voices.
