You wont get a permit x2!! Worked and lived in the area for close on 2 decades. I had a special permit due to my work requirements. The track was proposed for tourist use once but it never eventuated. Get caught on the track without a permit and you would be in a world of strife.

You will need a permit for the Central Arnhem road as well . This may also be hard to get. Apparently the NLC stopped issuing permits for tourism a while ago .
Good luck .....hope you can get there it is an awsome place to visit

Is this from COVID restrictions?

Or have you heard something third hand, as there is no mention here…

Hi
We were in Jabaru a month ago and there was a notice on the door of the NLC office . The reason was COVID
. There is conflict between the NLC and all the other organisations that issue permits . If you can get the permit to drive the Central Arnhem road you will be good to go .
