Wonders of Water

The WOW Discovery Team is coming your way

Meet our Wonders of Water Discovery Team, and experience water through interactive games and virtual reality. Playful platypus Jila will help you understand how Sydney Water makes your water safe to drink, how cities around the world harvest their water resources, and how we recycle our water every day. We'll let you know when we'll be near you to share all the Wonders of Water.

Invite us to your event

The Wonders of Water Discovery Team will share a range of interactive activities, from a world of augmented reality to engaging interactive games. Jila would love you and your community to have the totally immersive Wonders of Water experience.

Meet Jila

"Hi, I'm Jila!
Imagine it: all the water in the world today has gone up and down and round and round for billions of years. It's the same water the dinosaurs drank. All I can say is WOW!"

Jila is passionate about Greater Sydney's water: the dams, creeks and rivers. They're her home. Our Discovery Team couldn't think of a platypus better qualified to help tell the Wonders of Water story.

She's proud that her name means 'living water' in the Walmajarri language. Inland First Nations communities have different names for permanent water and water that is seasonal or temporary.
