Just received my approved permit to travel roads in Maralinga Tjarutja lands.

Wondering if anyone has any recent info on the condition of Vokes Hill road heading south of the AB Highway?

Also, what's required to visit the township? Is it possible, do you need to sign up for a tour? Can you just walk in?

Thanks mechpete. I've done a bit of reading and understand it much better now.

The road south from Vokes Hill Corner via Cook is fine. Note that there is now a detour that goes west and then south again that bypasses the Aboriginal wells and is still not shown on many maps.

What permits do you have, because to get to Maralinga township you will have to drive all the way south to the Eyre Highway and then north again via Ooldea, unless you get special permission to use the Aboriginal Business road that goes south east past Oak Valley (closed) community. This is also a good road (not a "track").

Thanks for the info Peter. I was emailing the Maralinga permit folks in Ceduna yesterday and sorted out where and where not I can go.

I think Maralinga will have to wait this time as it will be too much of a detour to include in this trip.

Thanks for help.
