Abstract: This plan builds upon the Australian Water Safety Strategy 2008-2011 (AWSS) and its goal of reducing rural and remote drowning deaths as part of the overall aim of achieving a 50% reduction in drowning deaths in Australia by the year 2020. This plan specifically addresses the prevention of drowning deaths occurring in rural and remote areas and residents of rural and remote areas who drown away from where they live. This rural and remote specific plan has been developed in response to Goal 4 of the AWSS – reduce rural and remote drowning deaths and in particular key objective 4.1 of this goal, was to develop and implement a national rural and remote water safety strategy. Other key objectives of this goal such as 4.2 increasing access to tailored water safety programs for people living in rural and remote areas and 4.3 addressing aquatic education instructor shortages in rural and remote areas will be dealt with within this Rural and Remote Water Safety Plan
