    6 Day Wildlife Tour of NT: Kakadu & Mary River National Parks

    6 Day Wildlife Tour of NT: Kakadu & Mary River National Parks

    Greens fundraiser – see the wildlife of the Top End

    Australia’s Top End – Kakadu and Mary River – is a wildlife haven rich in species rarely seen by most Australians: huge Crocodiles, Australian Bustards, Dingoes and Red-tailed Black-cockatoos.  Its a place where you can see a rare Rock-pigeon sheltering under centuries-old rock art, or watch a million flying-foxes fill the sky at sunset.

    Its a region facing an urgent choice: squeeze a few jobs from old-fashioned destructive industries like mining, fracking, pipelines and gambling and destroy the haven forever; or lead the way to real long-term jobs through responsible wildlife and Aboriginal Cultural tourism, renewable energy, Aboriginal Art and the environment.

    Join Greens members Echidna Walkabout Nature Tours to explore the wildlife and Aboriginal Culture of the Top End over 6 days.  You will be supporting a responsible tourism movement that is fighting for better choices in the Top End, and contributing to the Greens.

    For every person that joins this tour through the Greens, Echidna Walkabout will donate 25% of the tour cost to the Port Phillip Greens to support Steph Hodgins-May’s campaign for Melbourne Ports or to Stonnington to support the Prahan State Election Campaign.

    More information and book here: http://www.echidnawalkabout.com.au/tours/wild-top-end/

    Quote "GREENS: PORTS" or "GREENS: STONNINGTON" on your booking to ensure your donation to your chosen branch.

    Dates: 24 to 29 August 2017

    Details: 6 day tour, departs & returns to Darwin

    Cost: $3300 per adult. Single supplement and upgrades available

    Senator Richard Di Natale - Leader of the Australian Greens and former drug and alcohol doctor
    Sarah Mansfield - Local GP

    Batman Stop Adani Stall

    The debate is over: Climate change will destroy our way of life unless we act now. Yet Labor is no longer just blocking real action on climate change, they’re also supporting the dirty Adani carbon bomb.

    The Adani Coal mine would be the biggest coal mine in Australia’s history. Adani wants to use public funds to build this enormous carbon bomb that will destroy our climate and trash Indigenous rights. We have to stop it.

    We know that conversations are the most powerful way to connect with voters.  It’s now more important than ever that we hit the streets in marginal electorates to pressure Bill Shorten and Labor to commit to review commonwealth approval and rule out any support for the devastating Adani mine.

    Join us in Batman and Stop the Adani Mine!

    No experience necessary, just turn up between 11am - 2pm, introduce yourself to one of our friendly volunteers and join the conversation.
