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.
