Quamby Bluff from Dixon's Track

“Friends of the Great Western Tiers”, is a group of people who love and seek to preserve this magnificent landscape.

It includes people who live and work in the shadow of the Tiers, for whom the Tiers are a constant presence in their lives, people who visit regularly for holidays, those who paint, photograph, dance or dream in the shadow of the Tiers and those who walk, fish, ride or picnic on its face or in its streams.

“Friends of the Great Western Tiers”, has recently become an incorporated association.  Its objectives are:

(a)  to achieve the lasting and effective protection of the natural and
cultural values of the Great Western Tiers;

(b)  to promote the learning and appreciation of those values and
the recreational activities that are compatible with those values;

(c)  to promote cooperative management of the Great Western Tiers,
involving local communities with government agencies; and,

(d) to promote such economic development as would flow from the
achievement of a high conservation status for the Great Western Tiers.

We welcome new members and support and encourage meaningful dialogue with people who have an interest in The Great Western Tiers.  Feel welcome to join in activities and events organised by the Friends, so you too can enjoy and get better acquainted with the our unique iconic landscape.

Visions of the Tiers
    Can you see with the eye of a wombat?
    …as she appears at dusk to forage around the peat bog, browse over the cushion plants, nibble on wild orchids and drink from the still, dark pools.
