Ankerre Ankerre

Ankerre Ankerre (Coolibah Swamp) is central to Arrernte Mparntwe culture. Our priorities are to restore some integrity to the site, which is now dissected by arterial roads and drains, and covered in a mono culture of salt bush, introduced for dust control in the 1970’s.

We work to reduce the salt bush and grassy weeds to protect the ancient coolibahs from fire, open up the sight-lines in, and advocate for restoration of water flow. We aim to improve public appreciation of this extensive iconic site, which is  just 800 meters from the town centre.
