Our Aim is to provide advocacy and assist with community engagement and monitoring services to help landowners and community members who are already or may be impacted by invasive mining and gas pipeline activities. Our goal is to act now with strength and strategic planning.

We Aim to protect and preserve our natural assets such as groundwater, the Great Artesian Basin, food security, forests, farms, Indigenous cultural heritage and values and flora and fauna.

We Seek environmental justice, aiming to uphold and improve our existing environmental laws and preserve intergenerational equity (leave more for our kids, not less).

Our Mission is to provide urgently needed, frontline, practical assistance and advocacy for communities under threat. We will share our expertise to support vulnerable communities faced with the onslaught of Coal Seam Gas, major coal expansions and the linked industrial intensification they entail.

NWPA Members have continually proven how beneficial the relationships between farming communities and committed environmentalists can be by effectively halting the CSG industry in NSW for many years. Unconventional gas mining (Narrabri Gas Project) has been approved by the IPC in NSW and Queensland continues to bear the brunt of the invasive and damaging industry threatening the integrity of the Great Artesian Basin.

Join us, we are always seeking new volunteers to join us so please get in touch at northwestpa@protonmail.com and together we will help to stop further damage to country and community.

Our account is open for donations: Every single dollar that is given to us allows our volunteers to continue the essential work of protecting the north-west. All contributions, large or small, are very much appreciated.

With the news that Santos have become very active in the #Pilliga over the last week we are going to be publishing docs specifically relating to Workover Op’s that were procured by GIPA last year. Here are 2 current maps with good detail. They are currently working at Bohena 3


Update. @MPCKinetic are putting down pump rods which means the pump is in place & the well seems to be being brought back into production? It’s likely that the other 2 suspended wells nearby will be next? #Pilliga #Narrabrigas #CSG @PaulTooleMP has this work been approved? https://twitter.com/pilligapush/status/1573444479486513159

#BREAKING: Tiwi Traditional Owner Dennis Tipakalippa has won his landmark case over Santos’ approvals to drill precious Tiwi Sea Country!

The Federal Court of Australia has found that Santos failed to consult Traditional Owners as required.

Asked DPIE for extension for response to Inland Rail SPIRS (over 10,000pgs). Was told, DPIE would grant a few days and would nonetheless still consider it in their assessment report but "ARTC do not have to consider it in their submission report". Why?
