If you live in the Cottesloe area, your message is important.

The changes to Outback laws that we’ve been working hard to achieve are at a crucial ‘fork in the road’. 

Next week, Lands Minister Terry Redman will meet with his government colleagues to seek their support for the historic reforms.

Your local MP, Colin Barnett, is the WA Premier and he needs to know that you support his Government’s moves to create a brighter future for the Outback.

Please send a positive message of encouragement to Mr Barnett. As a resident of the Cottesloe area, your message will count.

Let the Premier know that you support his Government’s reforms, and ask him to get behind the changes to Outback laws that will lay the foundation for a brighter future.


Here's a sample email to the Premier that you can use as inspiration for your message, but please use your own words as much as possible.

Dear Mr Barnett,

I live in your local area and I’m writing to let you know how much I support your Government’s reforms to Outback laws.

These historic reforms will allow a wealth of new opportunities that will help agricultural businesses prosper while also looking after the land. The Rangelands Reform legislation will lay the foundations for a diversified, sustainable Outback economy and better support for Outback families.

These reforms are a vital step forward for both people and nature in our Outback. I would greatly appreciate your continued support for these reforms and I look forward to hearing of their progress.

Our Outback is an amazing place, but what makes it special is at risk. 

"It breaks my heart to leave, but I have no choice."

My family and I have made the hardest of decisions – to leave our home, Nallan Station. We’ve given every last drop of energy, time and money to bring this extraordinary part of WA back to health, but now our time is up.

Outback people need your support. Please sign Michael’s petition asking the WA Government to make the Outback a priority, so that other families aren’t forced to leave.

Will you sign?

    When you sign the petition, an email will be sent to Premier Mark McGowan and Minister for Lands Rita Saffioti to let them know you’ve signed. The email will also be copied to Shadow Minister for Lands Liza Harvey, Leader of the Nationals Mia Davies, and Greens Member for the Mining and Pastoral Region Robin Chapple.
