Was starting to research a trip up the david carnegie road and then eagle highway and found this.

http://www.centraldesert.org.au/resources/120926_IPA_Plan2_for_Country_Birriliburu.pdf

On page 34 it says "Tourists would be excluded from accessing this area (mainly due to
privacy reasons) and from travelling along the track known as the
Eagle Highway. The exception would be if they are part of a Martu
tour or guided by the native title holders"

Does anyone know if this is the case for 2014 or has this not been finalised as yet?

With no answers to your question so far Cruiser, try contacting Department of Aboriginal Affairs or put in an application outlining you proposed route and see what happens. If you do either of these, you may need to follow it up as the Department was not good on communicating when I was applying for transit permits.

Cruiser,

I'd suggest that is probably the case. You could try and contact Central Desert Native Title Services in Perth. They administer Birriliburu and quite a few other areas but are pretty specific about the non issue of permits. Doesn't hurt to seek advice from them in regards to travel on the Eagle. The particular areas they are trying to protect isMungilli at the southern end and Karringarri Claypan at the northern end of the Eagle.

Agree with you mostly Mick however Mungilli is excluded from the determination.
