Disgruntled irrigators and their supporters are planning to take their concerns directly to Canberra.

A "Convoy to Canberra" is the latest attempt by the region's irrigation farmers to convince the federal government that the Murray-Darling Basin Plan needs to be "paused and fixed".

Convoy participants plan to gather in Yass on Monday, December 2, then travel on to Canberra together.

A "water embassy" will be established to share irrigators' views on the current impact of government water policies, particularly the Murray-Darling Basin Plan.

Co-organiser Chris Brooks said the convoy is the latest in a series of events "designed to highlight why the plan has failed our nation, and what we can do to fix it".

"We want trucks, tractors on truck, utes and cars to join us on the road to Canberra," Mr Brooks said.

"If Prime Minister Scott Morrison won't come out and look at the damage to our communities from their disastrous plan, we'll take the message to him.

"Last week the NSW Deputy Premier John Barilaro acknowledged his state was ready to not just pause the plan, but 'rip it up', because of the hurt is causing the state."

Organisers want communities from across Australia's southern basin to participate in the convoy. This includes the Goulburn Valley, Northern Victoria, NSW Murray and Murrumbidgee regions.

It is also seeking regional coordinators to assist in organisation of the convoy.For more information, or to volunteer as a regional convoy co-ordinator, phone Jan Beer on 0407 144 777 or Darcy Hare on 0437 794 723.
