About Save The Kimberley

This website has been put together by the “Save The Kimberley” group (Formerly known as CHEAK: Cultural, Heritage and Environmental Advocacy for the Kimberley). We are an independent awareness organisation and have been established to:

The next generation making their views known in Broome

  1. Educate the Australian and international community about the threat to the Kimberley Coast and its inland wilderness areas posed by multi-billion dollar gas and large-scale industrial development proposals.
  2. Engage support to ensure that the Kimberley is protected for the enjoyment of current and future generations.
  3. Produce educational material about the impacts of the proposed developments.
  4. Disseminate information about the Kimberley’s globally unique cultural importance and the threats created by uncontrolled development.
  5. Save the Kimberley does not oppose development. Save the Kimberley supports appropriate development that looks after people and the environment of the Kimberley.

We hope you find our site informative.
