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.
