Water Trading: Permanent Water Trading
Water trading is one of the keys to using water efficiently. It encourages everyone to place a higher value on our scarce water resources. Queensland's active water trading market is a means of reallocating water on a voluntary basis to the use where it will be more highly valued. Market forces allow water to shift to most efficient and profitable businesses. Water trading also addresses the increasing demand and competition for water, while ensuring the protection of our natural water resources.

Water reforms in Queensland have made it possible for water users to buy water to expand their operations and sell water they do not need. The water trading market has been introduced to address the increasing competition for water without compromising the sustainable allocation and use of the state's water resources. This series of brochures has been prepared to provide information about the Queensland water trading framework and the implications of buying or selling water entitlements.
