North Kimberley station manager Susan Bradley supports Outback WA reforms

North Kimberley cattle station manager Susan Bradley, who oversees Theda and Doongan stations, spoke to ABC Country Hour today about her support for the government's proposed new legislation that will shape the future of the Western Australian Outback.

Ms Bradley said that many pastoralists have been seeking Outback reform for a long time. She criticised those who are seeking to stand in the way of reforms, characterising them as "dinosaurs of industry".

"I don't think that the dinosaurs of the industry should be holding back these people who really want to care for the land," Ms Bradley said.

Ms Bradley is in favour of diversification into more sustainable enterprises in the Outback. The stations she manages are extremely remote, meaning that getting livestock to market is challenging. "We are interested in conservation, in the biodiversity, environment, flora and fauna, and we are carbon trading,” Ms Bradley said.

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.
