Irrigation Australia  is the nation's leading irrigation organisation. It represents the whole of the Australian irrigation industry and its members cover all sectors of the industry and all stages of the supply chain. They include:

  • Water users
  • Consultants
  • Designers and installers
  • Educational institutions
  • Government
  • Manufacturers
  • Retailers
In addition, IAL is also the Australian representative body of the International Commission on Irrigation and Drainage (ICID). Established in 1950, this non-profit, non-governmental organisation aims to improve world food supply through sound land and water management.

IAL gives its members access to a unique network of information as well as to key voices and organisations from Australia's water resources sector. It is active in the areas of education and certification.

The organisation is not involved in political lobbying, but has a voice at the Federal policy level. It works closely with the National Water Commission, the Australia Water Association, Water Services Association of Australia and other groups.

IAL produces a number of publications including its flagship journal, Irrigation Australia, a quarterly industry publication covering irrigation issues and a monthly e-newsletter, Backwash.

IAL represents most irrigation water providers in Australia, with over $6 billion in assets (at replacement value), in 73 supply systems managed by 31 irrigation water provider businesses servicing over 46,000 irrigators and 270 towns as customers, (ANCID 2004/05 benchmarking report).

The organisation continues to represent its members and to provide leadership in the growth and development of all its sectors.
