Submission Writing Sessions

The WA Government's Fracking Inquiry has begun. 

Now is a critical time for protecting Western Australia from fracking gasfields. 

Don't let the unconventional gas industry dominate the WA submissions. 

For the sake of Western Australia's land, water, air, communities and other vibrant industries like agriculture, tourism and renewable energy, don't miss this chance to have your say in a written submission.

Come along to a Submission Writing session or other event and learn how. 


Perth Final Submission Writing Party - Tuesday 14 March - 6-8pm

Eneabba-Warradarge Community Meeting

While the new state government has imposed a temporary ban on 'hydraulic fracture stimulation' in our region (Mid West, Turquoise Coast and Midlands) while they run an inquiry, it hasn’t banned exploration for tight and shale gas, or other forms of gas extraction.

Join us on Thursday evening January 11 at the Eneabba Recreational and Sporting Centre, Eneabba Drive, Eneabba.

In response to some local community member requests, we have organised a community meeting to update you on the latest, and discuss what we can do to protect the area long term, like other communities have achieved across Australia (including now a full ban on unconventional gas exploration and production in the whole state of Victoria). We'll also give a quick update on the WA Fracking Inquiry that's open for submissions till 19 March.

Come along and see how you can protect our land, water and health. It will be a relaxed evening where updates will be provided, and there will be refreshments (supper) organised by local volunteers.

Eneabba-Warradarge Community Meeting
Thursday 11 January
5pm till 6.30pm

Community Town Hall Meeting - Dardanup

Event: Tuesday 21 November

AAA-GFFC-Labor-Rally.jpgThis is a public meeting concerning the new gas exploration lease recently obtained by Bunbury Energy (formally Unconventional Resources pty ltd).

This lease covers parts of the shires of Dardanup, Capel and Donnybook-Balingup and parts of the cities of Bunbury and Busselton.

We know that the gas in the South West is likely tight gas, we know that unconventional tecniques may need to be used to extract it. The fracking ban is not legislated and is restricted to hydraulic fracturing only. 

We do not want industrialisation of our beautiful South West and prime agricultural land.

All communities covered by this lease and exisiting leases are invited to a public meeting to find out more about what this means and what we can do about it.

6pm, Dardanup Sporting and Community Centre, Ferguson Road, Dardanup, Tuesday November 21

It’s time to turn that disappointment into action. We need to show them that protecting land, water and people from unsafe fracking gasfields is a BIG priority.

Stand with us as conference delegates and media go inside to debate the WA Labor fracking policy. The more people that attend, the stronger our message to Labor will be.
