The Channel Country is an iconic part of the Queensland Outback.
Situated in Western Queensland, the Channel Country is one of the most extraordinary and beautiful landscapes in Australia. It has a rich and diverse history, ranging from its indigenous cultures to its pastoral heritage.
The gas fracking industry could have a devastating impact on the fertile floodplains and rivers of the Channel Country. Every drilling rig will need a road, a pipeline and perhaps even a wastewater storage pond.
This will result in an industrialised landscape – threatening the nature, water, people and organic pastures the Channel Country is known for.
