Australian Aborigines are one of the best known and least understood people in the world. Their culture, art and stories are in popular demand all over the world.  Aboriginal artwork and music has been incorporated in most things Australian, and has become a recognisable feature of Australia.  Indigenous Australians have a rich history and culture that is worth exploring.

When touring the more remote regions where there are large areas of Aboriginal land, it is a good idea to respect the different regulations that are associated with each.

  1. Permits are required to travel on Aboriginal Lands in the Goldfields region.
  2. The Great Central Road, between Laverton and Uluru is patrolled and fines result if visitors have not obtained a permit.
  3. Permit application forms are available from any Department of Indigenous Affairs office or on the internet at www.dia.wa.gov.au/alt. Allow 2-3 weeks in advance for applications to be processed. It is the right of the Traditional Owners to refuse an entry permit.
  4. When travelling through Aboriginal Lands it is prohibited to divert off the main road.
  5. Unleaded petrol can not be purchased within the Shire of Ngaanyatjarraku. Only Avgas is available at the three fuel stops within the Shire - Warburton, Docker River and Giles. Unleaded fuel can be purchased at Yulara to the west and Tjukayirla to the east.
