Hi there,

Last Thursday, the WA premier signed an agreement with the traditional owners of the Gibson Desert Nature Reserve to jointly manage the reserve.

From what I can gather, Native Title is still currently extinguished and the reserve is still an Class A Reserve so access shouldn't be restricted.

The reserve will be renamed to "Pila Nature Reserve".

The agreement is called, "Lurrtjurrlulu Palakitjalu Settlement Agreement" and I have yet to secure a copy (can anyone help?)

Here's a picture of Gerald's Knob in the Browne Range in the reserve from a few weeks back

Looking for adventure.
In whatever comes our way.

Thanks for the info Alan,

Hopefully, access etc won't change.


There is a lot of difference between
‘Human Being’ and ‘Being Human’.

Re the new name, well, they needed new signs anyway. :) Here's what I saw as I entered and exited on the Gunbarrel Hwy last year.
