Our Education Centre provides a variety of learning resources for students, teachers and members of the community.
Here you can access community resources such as fact sheets, videos and our Augmented Reality tool as well as educational lesson plans which teachers and parents can use to discuss the themes of waterways and water safety with their children and students, starting from prep to grade 4. The resources can be used at home or in a school-based environment.
Sunwater has developed an augmented reality (AR) tool to share important information about how our dams work, safety at our storages, and how to prepare for weather events.
To take part in the augmented reality experience, download and print the map below. Follow the step-by-step instructions also found below on how to use the camera on your smartphone or tablet to access the experience—you don’t need to download an app.
As inviting as they may seem, Sunwater’s irrigation channels and weirs are not safe places to swim or fish. Syphons and gates operate automatically and without warning, and slippery banks make it hard to get out of the water. Unexpected flows can knock you down and trap you underwater.
Sunwater’s ‘Don’t end up dead wrong’ campaign is a reminder that trespassing can lead to devastating consequences.
Stay safe around Sunwater’s waterways – pay attention to signs and make sure you’re not where you aren’t supposed to be.
The Sunwater ‘Check things out, before you get in’ campaign is a reminder that no matter how well you know the waterway, submerged objects and hidden hazards are always present and can be extremely dangerous.
To stay safe, when visiting our waterways Sunwater urges all visitors to check things out before they get in:
check signs for important information
check conditions such as the weather and the water level
check for hazards that may be hiding below the surface
