The irrigation sector in Australia can offer you career opportunities in both rural and city areas, from irrigating rural orchards to urban golf courses.

Australia's rural production increasingly relies on drawing water from natural river systems into otherwise arid country. Harvested water now supports large rural businesses, so irrigation has become an important part of the national economy.

The importance of irrigation goes well beyond simply the value of produce. Irrigated agriculture and horticulture underpins our large food processing industry. Competence and skills developed in irrigation are sought after in Australia and around the world.

The planning and maintenance of irrigation schemes requires people from varied backgrounds and interests. The wide scope of the sector provides many opportunities to exploit a broad range of skills and knowledge, including labourers, technicians and designers.
