Local environmental groups are coming together again to raise awareness of the Central Coast coal mine that has recently been approved. Only 5 minutes from Wyong, the coal mine will directly affect the following communities: the Yarramalong and Dooralong valleys, Blue Haven and Wyee areas, Olney State Forest and Jilliby State Conservation Area.

The mining will be right in the middle of the water catchment that provides drinking water for over 100,000 Central Coast residents. There are also 16 known endangered species, such as the yellow-bellied glider and the sheath-tailed bat as well as irreplaceable Aboriginal sites in the locality also.

Coast Environmental Alliance (CEA) led a peaceful rally in July that saw over 250 people turn up in Erina to join the march. There were 6 speakers, including politicians, artists and environmental advocates. CEA believe that now is the time for community to stand up and be heard if they want to protect the beautiful Central Coast.

CEA are looking to get as many community groups involved as possible for their next peaceful, family friendly march in Wyong, with the aim to gather the Central Coast communities as one voice - Saying no to the Central Coast Coal Mine.


Event details:
> Saturday 26th October
> Time of Event: 2.30pm - 4.30pm
> Meeting point: Outside Wyong Council, 2 Hely Street, Wyong
