PERMITS ARE NOT BEING ISSUED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO CORONA VIRUS.. AS AT 20 MARCH 2020.
A permit is required when travelling on roads through Aboriginal land such as the Great Central Road, Tjukaruru Road and most of the roads-tracks leading off the Outback Way between Laverton and Yulara. Travellers driving along these sections can apply for a transit permit from the Central Land Council (NT), Department of Indigenous Affairs (WA) or the Ngaanyatjarra Council (NT). Special permission is required to travel off the Outback Way to places of particular interest and travellers can apply to the Ngaanyatjarra Council (NT), allowing 24-72 hrs .
Permits give you 3 days to travel from Yulara to Docker River and 3 days from WA Border to Laverton- this is heaps of time. You do not need to print your permit, just have it available on your email so it can be displayed if required.
The OHDC Inc can use the data to indicate how many people are using the road- this is helpful for maintenance and seeking funds for upgrading.
