Notes

We can also find prices for other water assets not on this page. Please contact us with your queries.

Prices are for each share component on the water licence. Water licences go by different names in different jurisdictions. In South Australia, it’s Water Licence, in New South Wales, it’s Water Access Licence and in Victoria it’s Water Entitlement Entity. In private IIOs, it goes by different names.

For NSW Murray WALs, it includes both above choke (zone 10) and below choke (zone 11). The water register website doesn’t discriminate between the two on searches. So for NSW Murray water, above choke (zone 10) will be trading for below the market price and below choke (zone 11) for above.

$0 trades and outliers are not included in these figures.

Unit prices are Volume-Weighted Average Prices (VWAP).
