Experience Aboriginal culture in the heart of the CBD
It’s not hard to get regular Arrernte cultural activities happening in town if you start from a place of respect and understanding. This is being done “on the smell of an oily rag” and could be much stronger and more sustainable if there was some support there. Unfortunately our government would rather send millions to a Sydney company to stage a cultural event for us (Parrtjima) – a company that has no respect or understanding and is still not talking to traditional owners.

Steve: Anyone who has been here for a while can see the huge change in the landscape.
Areas with little or no buffle are slowly being dominated by this weed at a detriment to the biodiversity an natural beauty of these places.
It crowds out other species and grows much thicker than native grasses and leaves a huge fuel load that burns hotter.
Sure we need to take precautions to stop these wildfires but in national parks and areas that are set aside to protect the natural environment buffle needs to be severely controlled if not eradicated.


Government fails to protect major tourism asset
If we care at all for our environment, biodiversity and parks we would be looking for some way to stop the spread of buffle grass and eradicate it if possible.
What was that thing I heard about a buffle seed head caterpillar from Queensland?
