Lock The Gate Alliance is a national coalition of people from across Australia, including farmers, traditional custodians, conservationists and urban residents, who are uniting to protect our common heritage - our land, water and communities - from unsafe or inappropriate mining for coal seam gas and other fossil fuels. Read more about the missions and principles of Lock the Gate.

Our best food-producing lands and our finest natural areas are at risk from unsafe coal mining, coal seam gas and other forms of unconventional gas extraction. 54% of Australia is covered by coal and gas licences or applications. Nowhere is sacred and nothing is safe. Learn more..

Coal mines and gasfields are harming peoples health, destroying their quality of life and dividing communities. Learn more..
Our Future
Unsafe mining is threatening drinking water catchments, underground water supplies and creeks and rivers. Learn more..

Rock the Gate

Enmore Theatre, Newtown

UPLIFT in association with Lock the Gate is excited to announce Australia’s biggest concert to support rural communities uniting to protect their farmlands from fracking and unconventional gas mining.

Buy a ticket here and see the great line up of Australian music and come along to Newtown for this unmissable event.



A serious explosion at a water bore in Queensland shows farmers and communities should be very concerned about coal seam gas, despite government and industry reassurances to the contrary.
