Grand Canyon at risk of ruin

Grand Canyon Grand Canyon  (Ian Brown)
We can’t let helicopters shatter the peace and tranquillity of our beloved Grand Canyon.

After spending $4.8m of taxpayer’s money on a restoration that was only completed in 2017, the State Government now risks ruining it all because of developer pressure to run commercial helicopter flights.

Any helicopter noise so close to the Canyon will be absolutely devastating for the visitors who flock there, as well as significantly impacting wildlife, migratory birds and the local community.

Please join us in saying ‘no’.  We’ve written to the Minister to tell her how damaging any commercial development would be, now we need you to as well..

Help us get social and keep up the pressure

Katoomba Airfield
Helicopters are Back on the Agenda

no heli-tourism
We’re kicking off the New Year with a new phase in our campaign and a resounding message for the NSW Government:

“stick to your original decision to reject the lease on the airfield”

A revised proposal was submitted to Crown Lands late last year and is now being re-assessed.

We’re deeply concerned about the process being adopted by the Government, and the influence that the developer has on the outcome. If the goal posts are moved and community voice ignored, it will be a flawed and biased process - it’s only fair if there’s transparency.

We’ve written to the Minister to tell her how damaging any commercial development would be, now we need you to as well..

Please help us keep up the pressure by spreading the word.

We greatly value your support and would love you to help us by spreading the word, and sharing on Facebook.

Katoomba Airfield
Development Still a Risk

no heli-tourism
Community said ‘no’ but Katoomba Airfield is still at risk of development
We need your help urgently

Katoomba Airfield is still at risk of development into a commercial airfield for heli-charters.

The proposed lease, that was initially rejected, is now being reconsidered.

We are calling on Minister Pavey to uphold the original decision and secure the Airfield’s long–term future, by ensuring that:

We need you to join us and write to the Minister, asking the same.

If we don’t act now, we risk forever ruining our National Park. The proposed commercial airfield would directly impact the threatened species that live close to the site, destroy the natural quiet of the renowned Grand Canyon walk and Grose Valley wilderness, and impact the local community.
