The largest state in Australia also has the most wild country. From the fantastic landscapes of the Kimberley, to one of the world's biodiversity hotspots in the south west botanical province, WA contains some of the best of planet Earth. Australia's biggest woodland is the incredibly diverse Great Western Woodlands, stretching from the rabbit-proof fence to the Nullarbor. Our Perth office is working to protect this global treasure. We helped protect the old growth forests of the south coast, and now we want to help connect them, across a thousand kilometres, to the Great Western Woodlands through the ambitious, multi-group effort of Gondwana Link.

Congratulations James Price Point, Broome and Australia! The Wilderness Society is excited and relieved by Woodside’s decision to pull out of the destructive gas hub project planned for James Price Point in the Kimberley.
Talented Aussie actor, Isabel Lucas, has joined the fight to protect the Kimberley coast from destruction. Listen to Isabel's special message.
An opinion piece on the proposed James Price Point gas hub written by our Mt. Lawley champion & Broome resident, Miranda Curran: Exploiting nature for industrialisation vs. preserving a special place for natures sake, cultural values and human enjoyment - in the context of a state election.
Last weekend, more than 20,000 people attended Concert for the Kimberley in Perth, Western Australia. Headline acts John Butler, Missy Higgins, and Ball Park Music generously gave their time to the cause, and the turn out was sensational.
