You can get the one for WA on line from DAA instantly from their automated service if for crossing within the three days. Alternatively you can get it from the Ngaanyatjarra office in Alice Springs (office hours).

For NT you can get the permit on line by return email - within one working day. You can also get it in Alice Springs (office hours) from the CLC office in the main street (Stuart Highway though town).

I am babysitting grandies right now, but if you want links to these or more information, send me and MM and I will look them up when I get home.

Hi Landy
Do we need to apply for a particular 'time frame' for these permits ??
We will be travelling the GCR from Yulara to Laverton - sometime in June.
Leaving Sydney about June 1- and have no idea when we'll be on the GCR.

Cheers

Yes, you will need to nominate travelling times. Once you know apply then, no problem in obtaining them for the GCR.

Hi Wombat

Western Australia are inflexible with times compared to Northern Territory.

As we were touring the West Macs, Palm Valley, Kings Canyon then on to Uluru, our time frame was unknown.

For Northern Territory I got the first one with a three week window, then realised we would be longer than that, so got another for the next three weeks, and we travelled within the latter. These were from the CLC office in Alice Springs.

The Ngaanyatjarra Office in Alice Srings gave me the forms and the advice to use the fax service from the Yulara Visitor Centre (where they charged a fax fee of something like one dollar). We just had to watch our days as Ngaanyatjarra are not open on weekends. Fax sent one day, and permit faxed back next morning in time for us to leave. For those travelling in the other direction, the managers at Tjukayirla Roadhouse have arranged with Ngaanyatjarra to offer a similar service.

The way I read the WA permit- it is only for 3 days transit from NT border to Laverton ?? Have I missed something here ??
It's about 900km distance, and sure can be covered in 3-days but we tend to 'puddle duck' along and enjoy the journey.
What happens if it takes us more than the time allotted??

Yes Wombat. It is a transit permit for that time. IF you were caught out, you were delayed by unforeseen circumstances. I don't think it has happened to anyone yet.

We did have a breakdown along the way and had to stop overnight in an old gravel to do repairs. We could have been there for weeks if we had to wait for parts.
