POWA Creek Convoy – Sunday 7th May

Yesterday about 30 lovely people joined POWA and braved the polar blast to visit four creeks impacted by coal mine pollution in the Illawarra. It was great! We had a nice crowd of Wollongong locals, as well as some friends from Sydney who stuck around after May Day.

WIN News Illawarra did a great story about the convoy and the ongoing issues with stream pollution — watch it here.

If you missed the convoy, you can take yourself on the tour by having a look at the flyer below.

Be there: POWA Creek Convoy, 10am Sunday May 7th

Its been a long time coming, but POWA is organising a follow-up to our Water Catchment Convoy of 2020. This time, we will be keeping it local, and visiting the suburban creeks of the Illawarra that we know and love – and have been impacted by the local coal mines we have been campaigning against for the last 5 years.

Come along, learn about your local waterways, and feel inspired to fight to protect the waterways that provide habitat and make our area a more-lovely place to live.

We will be starting from Lowden Square (eastern side of Wollongong Train Station) at 10am, and heading southwards to:
– Collins Creek, Woonona
– Bellambi Creek, Bellambi
– Allens Creek, Unanderra
– Brandy and Water Creek, Figtree
… and finishing up at Mt Kembla for a lovely picnic, wrapping up around 2pm.

We will have a mini bus, but will also need some people to bring their own cars for the tour.

Keep an eye on the Facebook event for more info closer to the date.
