Quarry threatens Walkabout Park

On 24 December 2013 the NSW Planning Dept approved Rocla NZ's sand quarry next door to Walkabout Park. Walkabout Park is appealing the decision to the Land & Environment Court. Imagine the noise and dust from the 30 meters deep crater, in full view of Walkabout Park's visitors, with massive rock crushing equipment from 6am to 10pm, even on Saturdays. PLUS they will crush up the sandstone aquifer 'sponge' that holds the water store, remove critically endangered eco-systems and threatened species' habitat, and destroy Calga's ancient Aboriginal cultural landscape.

This is going to be a very expensive exercise but we are convinced that it is a fight worth fighting.
All donation amounts are gratefully received. Even the smallest donation will make a difference.

Donation Information:


The Walkabout Wildlife Conservation Foundation was set up in 2013 to support Walkabout Park's conservation efforts. As at January 2014, the Foundation is still in the process of applying for tax deductible gift status, so your donation is NOT tax deductable at this time. If this matters to you, please contact us in case we have an update on when the tax deductable status will be achieved. As at January 2014 we expect that this will be achieved before the end of the year.
