People are leaving the Outback

The Outback needs people more than ever to meet these challenges.

Right now, government inaction and WA’s laws are stopping the uptake of new sustainable enterprises that care for the land Those Outback stations that want to diversify into more profitable and environmentally-friendly ways of making a living, such as tourism, are not allowed to. Frustrated by the brakes on opportunity, people are leaving and old, unsustainable practices continue, risking further damage.

Wouldn’t it be great if our laws encouraged new enterprises and jobs, rewarded those who manage their land well, and protected our heritage?

We need a new approach – one that supports people, jobs and nature.

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 the WA Premier, Opposition Leader and Leader of the WA Nationals to let them know you’ve signed. Click here to read more.
