Martuwarra Fitzroy River Council
The Martuwarra Council considers the Martuwarra (Fitzroy River) to be communal property, an ‘asset in the commons’ that belongs to all of us and must be protected for the benefit of present and future generations.
The Martuwarra Fitzroy River Council believes rivers are the lifeblood of our Nation. The Council is focused on the Right To Life of the sacred and National Heritage Listed Martuwarra Fitzroy River. By bringing the Voices of the Martuwarra together, this protects the River from proposed and existing invasive developments.
Since its inception the Martuwarra Fitzroy River Council has attracted the attention of leading scientists and researchers, both in Australia and internationally, through its ability to bring together the majority of Traditional Owner groups from the region.
