Outback poem

I love the WA outback
A place superb and vast
The land which we all must protect
To make sure it will last.

I love the northern Outback
The land of Pindan dust
The rich red of the Pilbara
Is every traveller’s must.

I love the southern outback
A land of tall trees and vines
The beauty of WA’s south
Appeals to visitors of all kinds.

I love the eastern outback
That lonely Nullarbor plain
No matter how often I cross it
The wonder will never wane. 

Our children and their children
Deserve to enjoy our state
The WA outback must be cared for
So all can see it’s great

I love the WA outback
No matter where I arrive
Derby Giles Sandstone Wooleen
I hope they all survive.

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.
