Water Safety Week is 3-9 December 2018, with Boating Safety Day on Wednesday 5 December.
The week is an initiative of Play it Safe by the Water, formed by a number of Victorian agencies and groups following a mass drowning 20 years ago.
Maritime Safety Victoria is a member of Play it Safe by the Water, and our boating education team attended the launch event to share top tips for boating and paddling safety.
Take a look back at 20 years of water safety awareness with the Play it Safe by the Water campaign video.
