Bringing Outback laws into the 21st Century

Did you know that since the 1800s it’s been against the law to own an Outback Station in WA and not earn your living from cattle or sheep? Outdated laws are holding people back from diversifying into more modern, profitable and sustainable enterprises that also help care for the land, such as tourism.

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

Well, we now have the opportunity to make this a reality.

This year the WA Government is considering historic reforms to Outback laws and together we can convince them to do the right thing. But we need your help so that more people know about this great opportunity.

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

Help make Outback carbon farming a reality

Carbon farming is breathing life back into the Wheatbelt. But just over the fence in WA’s Outback, where it's needed most, it's not allowed.

Kent Broad has been a farmer all his life and he's seen first-hand the benefits that carbon farming has brought to WA's Wheatbelt - but the Outback is missing out.

Help make Outback carbon farming a reality - tell government today.
