It's time for action on Gamba

Protecting our homes and way of life.

Territorians feel pretty strongly about protecting our way of life. We share a love for the great outdoors and a strong connection to amazing Top End places.

Being so close to nature is why many of us choose to live here. It’s also what makes our tourism industry so successful. Healthy natural icons will be an essential part of our economic rebound.

But our lifestyle and landscapes are threatened by the spread of gamba grass. Gamba is bringing faster and hotter fires closer to our homes, making our fire season more dangerous. National Parks like Litchfield are already feeling the strain of gamba infestations.

Send your message today to Labor Chief Minister Michael Gunner, Country Liberal Party Leader Lia Finocchiaro, and Territory Alliance Leader Terry Mills.

We need urgent action to protect our homes and our properties – and the precious natural places that support our Territory way of life, before it’s too late.

George's Story

With most of our native grass fires, unless they’re very heavy, you can actually walk through the middle of them. With a gamba fire, you cannot get near it. It's hard to find a way to explain a gamba fire to people who haven't experienced one.
