Grass-roots community organisation that aims to improve the natural condition of the Derwent catchment

Derwent Catchment Project

At around one-fifth the total area of Tasmania, the Derwent Catchment is a vast region with extraordinarily diverse landscapes. Within its borders are hydro-electricity operations, agriculture, forestry and aquaculture, and it's also one of the state's favourite tourist destinations. The bulk of Hobart's drinking water originates here.

The Derwent Catchment Project was set up to assist landholders to restore and maintain natural and agricultural landscapes across this challenging environment, to ensure a prosperous and sustainable future for the Derwent Catchment.
