Just letting members know that I have acquired 2 permits with 2 to go. The Defence mob will probably be another month or so. Maralinga and Tallaringa were back within 5 days. Still waiting on Cosmo. I have indicated dates and from advice members gave me, I am not too perturbed if they are not exactly when I will be passing their zones. Thanks for all the replies I got. Skip

Hi Ernie a couple of years ago when I did the AB my Defense passes took for ever and I ended up phoning the guy. He said he'd lost my application but processed a new one there and then. If it's been a while give them a call.

Cheers

I am also considering doing the Anne Beadell again, most likely as a single vehicle because I am sick of travelling with people that are “time poor”.
One aspect of the Woomera per it that I hadn’t noticed before, so most certainly hadn’t complied with is the section in quotes as follows:

Permits are required for all other roads. This includes the Anne Beadell Highway, a 4WD track from Coober Pedy to Western Australia.

Permits are required for each vehicle in the party and cannot be issued more than 12 months in advance.

“Tourists must also provide at least 10 business days notice to confirm any proposed entry under their permit. Applications should be submitted to the Woomera Test Range in advance of this time to allow for processing.”

Does anybody else do this, or just take entry for granted due to being in possession of the relevant permit?

Permits are, and always have been required to enter any part of Woomera except the public zones. It's a significant fine if you are caught without one.

I realise that, but I didn’t realise that after you had obtained the permit you also had to make further contact with them 10 days prior to entering the zone!

.
No Shaker, it is a poorly worded document and is clarified on page 1 of the permit as per the following cut&paste:

"For the purposes of condition 1(a) (see page 2) SHOULD YOUR PLANNED DATES VARY FROM THOSE PREVIOUSLY ADVISED you must contact the Woomera Test Range on 08 8674 3014 or 08 8674 3370 at least 10 business days prior to entering the WPA." The capitals are mine.

After issue of the permit, you only need to make contact to advise if your dates have changed.
Cheers
