The Bimblebox Nature Refuge is a biodiverse, 8000 hectare remnant habitat in the path of a massive Galilee Basin, thermal coal mine. Paola Cassoni and supporters have been fighting for 15 years to protect Bimblebox from coal mining. Go to Bimblebox.org
Waratah Coal’s Galilee Coal project applied in late 2019 for their final approvals to mine thermal coal in an area encompassing and surrounding the Bimblebox Nature Refuge. Submissions against the application generated a Land Court of Qld hearing. The hearing commenced on 19 April 2022 with final submissions heard on the 29 July, 2022.
