Abstract The use of water in the 'Top End' of Australia is a hot topic, with competing interests and pressure from drought-ravaged southern Australia. Water is now a potential lightning rod for conflict between economic uses, environmental concerns, and cultural values. This collection of papers comes out of the Charles Darwin Symposium ‘Water in the Top End’, held at Charles Darwin University, Darwin in May 2008, which focussed on the future and explored a range of perspectives on the two questions: What are the opportunities for and constraints on water use? Should we continue to think of the Northern Territory as a frontier with boundless possibilities? There is an obligation on the present to frame the future of water use in the Top End, and this volume provides valuable fuel for this debate. Bob Wasson is the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Research & International at Charles Darwin University. Educated in earth sciences with a PhD in geomorphology, he is recognised nationally and internationally for research that underpins the management of natural resources.
