Ladies and Gentlemen, for those that have done the CSR, I have just received my permits, to travel the CSR, and I notice that one of the places that I wished to visit was stretch Lagoon, and according to my paper work it is now a prohibited area. Can any one share some light on this for me.
thank you

Access to Stretch lagoon is not prohibited but it is not covered by CSR permits. It is part of the Paruku Indigenous Protected Area and requires another permit. Info here:Paruku IPA Permit System

A camping permit costs $30 per vehicle for the first day and then $10 per day thereafter. A day visitor permit is $10 per vehicle.



It is a lovely spot and a good place to camp.

Cheers,
John

We've camped there twice and it's a fabulous spot. The nearby aboriginal community of Bililuna is very friendly too, as we found when one of our group had vehicle problems on the Canning and we had to spend an extra few days at Stretch. Make sure you take plenty of good midgie repellent though !!

Hi Broodie,
Testing my memory a bit, but I'm pretty sure that the first time we visited we called in to see the ranger at Mulan on our way to Lake Gregory, and he provided us with a permit at the time which covered both places and the track between. However that was probably not the way we should have done it.
The second time we got all our permits online when we were planning our Canning trip, but when our friends had their vehicle trouble we had to return to Stretch and over-stay our permission. So we just went into the community and asked if that was OK, and they agreed without asking for an additional permit.
But as a general rule I do all this online before starting a trip.
Enjoy the journey!!

Hi Wildmax,
I am just trying to work out the distances from Bililuna to stretch lagoon , and how far the next days travel is going to be, as we will be traveling north to south, and probably only travelling around 100 to150 klm per day, depending on road conditions, and the type of terrain, and the never ending corrugations, could you let me know what other permits will be required please, if you could do that it would be an immense help
Thank you

Less than 20 km from Bililuna to Stretch.
U need to Google details of Canning permits or check the trek notes or threads on this forum as there are different permits for different sections
