Please join us at the Mareeba Racecourse 9.30am and 1pm on Wed. 28th May to hear from local Bamma (Aboriginal) leaders and Drew Hutton (Lock the Gate Alliance). Tea and cake avail.

A coalition of concerned community members is assisting the Western Yalanji Aboriginal Corporation and Nguddaboolgan Prescribed Body Corporate, who invite the public to learn and share their knowledge of coal seam gas (methane) extraction and its implications for our region

A CSG exploration permit has been granted over Nguddaboolgan

(Mt Mulligan) ~60km west north west of Mareeba in the headwaters of the iconic Mitchell River. Nguddaboolgan is a very sacred place to the Djungan people and surrounding traditional custodians. This country contains numerous sacred and cultural sites that are listed on the National Heritage database and has endangered fauna and also plants that are found nowhere else.

Mt Mulligan also holds significant historical values.
