Stop Sand Mining on Stradbroke Island

North Stradbroke Island is one of Queensland’s most beautiful assets. It’s too important for politics!

Three large sand mines operate on Stradbroke Island, causing permanent damage that is impossible to repair or rehabilitate.

Current legislation plans to progressively phase out mining on Straddie and help the island community move to a diversified, resilient economy.

Campbell Newman has announced that he will overturn existing legislation, if elected, to allow international mining giant Sibelco to continue to plunder our island.

Whoever you vote for in the Queensland election, please sign the Save Straddie petition so we can let Campbell Newman know that you support ending mining and protecting this natural treasure.
