Market price information for Murray–Darling Basin water entitlements

​​​Bureau of Meteorology's water markets dashboard

Current water market and price information is available at the Bureau of Meteorology’s water markets dashboard. The BoM water markets dashboard provides comprehensive information for catchments across Australia, including:

  • location
  • type of water source, such as surface water, groundwater, or both
  • type of water products, such as allocation trade, entitlement trade and entitlements on issue, and
  • time periods which can be over a number of years, monthly, weekly or seasonal.

Water entitlement market prices across the Murray-Darling Basin

The latest monthly full and summary reports on water trade statistics for a number of water entitlement types across the Murray–Darling Basin are now available for download at the links provided below. The reports are the latest in an historical series of reports compiled by independent consultants and published by the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment to help irrigators and other interested parties to identify and understand the prices paid for various water entitlements.

The reports were produced quarterly from September quarter 2009 to September quarter 2016. From October 2016 the reports are produced monthly. The reported statistics are drawn from the state water registers of New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland and South Australia and from Murray Irrigation Limited's water exchange.

Prices on these water registers are for transfers approved by relevant authorities and may not appear on the relevant state register for several months after contracts have been exchanged or the water sale agreement was first struck. Consequently, the prices reported on water registers may not be truly representative of current prevailing market prices. For this reason, to help market participants gauge current prevailing market prices, the price reports include buyer bid and seller ask prices identified from surveys of water brokers and trading exchanges for a number of catchments, where available.

The views and opinions expressed in the reports do not necessarily reflect those of the Australian Government. While reasonable efforts have been made to ensure that the contents of the reports are factually correct, the Australian Government does not accept responsibility for the accuracy or completeness of the reports, and shall not be liable for any loss or damage that may be occasioned directly or indirectly through the use of, or reliance on, the reports. Readers should exercise their own skill and care with respect to their use of the material published in this reports and should carefully evaluate the accuracy, currency, completeness and relevance of the material for their purposes.
