Unfortunately GMW is not currently accepting recreational event permits due to the unknown situation of coronavirus (COVID-19).
Event permit applicants are welcome to make contact once the restrictions in regards to public events and mass gatherings have been lifted.
GMW understands this may make forward planning difficult, however cannot make any commitments at this time.
Before You Apply
Goulburn-Murray Water (GMW) will advise you in writing of its decision to allow the event or reject the application.
Applications to stage the event should be lodged for approval 90 days prior to the event date.
Incomplete application forms will result in a delay in processing and possible rejection if adequate time is not provided. Additional fees may also apply. Please read the Events at GMW Waterways Fact Sheet for information on:
- Criteria for permit approvals
- Permit assessment process
- Exclusive use
- User safety.
If your application is conditionally approved you will need to provide the following supporting documents:
- Certificate of Currency for $20 million Public Liability Insurance
- Communications Plan
- Risk Management Plan
- Emergency Management Plan
- Food/Liquor Permits (if applicable)
- Relevant approvals from other agencies (if applicable).
GMW Event Management Plan Templates must be used for the plans listed above - download our Event Management Plan Templates here.
You can contact GMW staff for an update on your application:
Note: GMW reserves the right to limit the number, type and size of events at its properties and waterways. A fee and bond may be imposed at GMW discretion. The application process is not considered to be a right to stage, or approval to run an event.
