A group Save Eungella formed in the Finch Hatton-Eungella locality to oppose the pumped hydro scheme.
Save Eungella is a Not-For-Profit community organisation founded in October 2022 with the support of more than 80 local community residents. Formerly known as “NO Hydro Save Netherdale/Eungella/Mt Dalrymple”, Save Eungella is dedicated to stopping the proposed Pioneer-Burdekin Pumped Hydro Project.
After the shock announcement on the 28th of September 2022 when the Queensland Government headlined a $12 billion project quoting “the world’s biggest pumped hydro”, locals and landowners expressed their concerns about the impact the proposed pumped hydro project would have on the environment and the community.
The Royal Society of Queensland published a Special Issue of its Proceedings in 2020 on the rainforests of the Eungella locality. See https://www.royalsocietyqld.org/eungella-special-issue-vol-125/.
