Abstract: Water Safety in the Bush is a community-based project aimed at reducing risk of drowning and near drowning across remote Australia. The project was developed by the Combined Universities Centre for Rural Health (CUCRH), in consultation with the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing (DOHA) Injury Prevention Unit and the Royal Lifesaving Society of Australia (RLSAA), as a strategy to reduce childhood drowning and near drowning on farms and stations.
