Been reading about this weeks government declaration of 5 Million hectares of land surrounding Uluru--- (I like Ayres Rock) being made a IPA--( Indigenous Protected Area ) and wondered does anyone know if that will put any restrictions or limits on everyday outbackers and 4x4ers. ---i.e--no go zones. more permits, etc..?

Gooday,
Have a look at a Petrol Welder, 'Mosa' make one, I have had one for over 25 years, will run an 8 gauge rod if needed, only weighs 25 KG is 2 stroke but does a fabulous job.
From my experience you will need a 7.5 KVA generator to run anything worthwhile.

No it shouldn't do anymore than exists now.

This has been going on since the late 1990's. Having the area declared an IPA means that the traditional owners enter into an agreement with the government to maintain the biodiversity, ecology and cultural resources of the area declared. It's a conservation agreement in other words and adds their land to the overall government protected reserve holdings. The Govt will provide funding to undertake biodiversity studies etc. The money is not huge and is usually used to provide ecologically sustainable programs around the environment. It will also provide training and opportunity for the T/O's. It does put restrictions on the use land but this is more around mining and activities damaging to the environment and will also provide opportunities for protection through pest eradication, mosaic burning and erosion control. The Canning crosses quite a few IPA's and this has helped to establish better relationships with the locals as well as provide infrastructure along the route (Go Track-care).

In other words...Keep Calm and carry on. You'll still need your Great Central Roads permits as always but nothing much else will change in that area.

There's a bit of explanatory info on IPA's HERE andHERE.


Cheers

When you visit Ayers rock now, where can you go other than the rock or the olgas? 12.5 million acres 50,000 square kilometres. Thats a lot of area to go walkabouts in.

As Mick O has indicated in an earlier response, it won't make any difference to the access currently enjoyed.
