    know that the same State Government that signed off on protecting the values of Bimblebox in perpetuity also granted several companies exploration permits for coal over Bimblebox and an adjacent area the size of Germany Patrons of the 2015 Alpha Show noted that there were no mining company stalls that many Alphanians were sad and that some speculatory jams turned out to be pickles Onward to Clermont where the quilt was hung just This town sits at the western nexus of prime cropping and Bowen Basin coal One industry is finite Graziers over the central portion of the Galilee Basin head

grazing and mining Fairbairn Dam with its omnipresent grey specks on the weather radar has enough water for next year s cotton Memories of the Nogoa River flooding the town and nearby Ensham mine have not faded While at this Show the quilt could not be hung and was unwelcome but a fifth member of the sewing circle stood up to the injustices keeping it alive until Rockhampton obfuscation denials memory loss and dummy spitting Maybe it was the word brolga that got their rancour up or even the spirit of the bush Kindness emerged from the local quilting group allowing some space and the public showed their support But no one predicted what would happen in Mackay QUILTGATE Upon arrival at the Show the lady in charge of the pavilion looked it up and down It s a bit controversial It is just a quilt with wildlife from a Nature Refuge we want to raffle for You know the Mackay Show Society will charge twenty per cent of your ticket sales Yes said lassie number six standing her ground politely OK she said and a spot was found next to the entrance door Next morning the quilt was nowhere to be seen The lady in charge said that the quilt was political and could not be displayed or raffled What on earth is political about this quilt It s got biodiversity on it Forward fast to the main office and unfold the quilt How is this political It is political and we do not allow anything political at this show Do you believe in free speech No Show us your constitution or vision statement or anything that clearly explains your position Incorporated organisation Request a copy in writing Where shall I send the request To me Well I realise shows along the coast have been under some pressure from the mining industry she said only trying to understand where he was coming from With that his face went purple denied industry involvement with the situation and mentioned the word security all with some volume So she left trying not to throw up Are we too ashamed to show off our biodiversity Is there

am co owner of Bimblebox Nature Refuge located in the state s central west and the President of the recently formed group The Bimblebox Alliance Inc http bimblebox org nature refuges I am writing to ask for your stance on the mining of Nature Refuges Our 8 000 hectare Nature Refuge is currently threatened by Clive Palmer s China First Project also known as Galilee Coal Project in the Galilee Basin This would destroy Bimblebox and the refuge it offers to endangered species like the Black throated Finch The mining of Nature Refuges and other areas of high conservation value was a prominent issue prior to the 2012 election and both major parties promised positive outcomes for the environment Then Premier Anna Bligh committed that Bimblebox would not be mined while Campbell Newman stated coal mining will not be allowed in areas of high conservation value However Mr Newman s assurance proved hollow when in 2013 his government approved the China First project more Bimblebox nature

  • Bimblebox quilt raffled « Bimblebox Nature Refuge
    fourth prizes went to Rhonda from Rockhampton Lyn in Ferny Hills and Jodie in Beechworth QUILTGATE by Russell Fairfax This is a true story about a tremendous bunch of sheilas The youngest is 68 After hundreds of hours of love and care a first time quilter plied her new trade as a fund raising prize Her chosen cause was a non profit organisation striving to help landowners protect our fauna and flora through Nature Refuges Much like a prize cake or large pumpkin the humble quilt was to be displayed and raffled at various Queensland agricultural shows with tickets selling for 2 each The quilt s centrepiece is a photograph of a man making a cup of tea Were it not for the subject s resemblance to a Sydney Nolan with Fred Williams painting the background to the overall effect of a Frederick McCubbin the photograph is unremarkable The man is surrounded by stitched panels depicting several plants and animals familiar to a child such as an echidna brolga plumed whistling duck and so forth The quilt has had a rough journey over the last few months from the outback to the central coast History now begs the question did the stitchers realise just how instrumental the quilt would be at displaying the fabric of rural Queensland How long will they think that one word not even stitched could be so political its mere portrayal is unfit for public display The answers start at the Barcaldine Show Barcaldine people are laid back as a rule but glossing over the oopsie daisy under that Tree not afraid to whack a couple of rockets on a skateboard and fire up now and again However there s a sort of a drought on and not too much is happening You made a quilt Great It was displayed without fuss and received comments such as how nice it was Next stop Alpha Somewhat surprisingly given its proximity to Bimblebox Nature Refuge the Alpha Show committee didn t return correspondence requesting the quilt be displayed At this point it might be useful to know that the same State Government that signed off on protecting the values of Bimblebox in perpetuity also granted several companies exploration permits for coal over Bimblebox and an adjacent area the size of Germany Patrons of the 2015 Alpha Show noted that there were no mining company stalls that many Alphanians were sad and that some speculatory jams turned out to be pickles Onward to Clermont where the quilt was hung just This town sits at the western nexus of prime cropping and Bowen Basin coal One industry is finite Graziers over the central portion of the Galilee Basin head east into Clermont for supplies so the town s glancing west One can see historic flood marks near the town where A dunny d be underwater Advance to Emerald currently hosting the full gamut of cropping grazing and mining Fairbairn Dam with its omnipresent grey specks on the weather radar has
