Kalumburu is a dry community. But with that said others were freely consuming tinnies at camp grounds out of town...

G'day Fredd,
May I assume you're a cane toad, and have vivid memories of our political drama at Lochardt R. in the very recent past.
We found in July- Oct/05 that ,provided you enjoyed a quiet Reisling (not to mention Mead or rUFF red) with your freshly caught mackrel/jew/GIANT oysters at Kalumburu etc., life is sweet.
Be subtle,and life was easy then;(6 months ago).
Back in The Smart State, we did a quick run up toward Pandanus Park early Jan. (06)Got as far as Old Laura (then 'road closed'.Blimey, it's the wet season: silly me.), and just felt that 'no grog' meant burning at the stake if sprung.

---I suspect that Qld. is probably at the harsher end of penalties for trafficking offences, and I offer no solutions. I know that I won't be travelling to Bamaga in the current legislative climate, but, unless things have changed, WA is sweet.
(And in the Name of those who must remain nameless (or at least 'cartoonless') WA. does have an aweful lot to offer.
Enjoy, before they seal the GRR, as has just been done to the Cooktown link. (Is it really true that the Icon of 'buy Australia' has leased his 'chopper to a land agent in/around Cooktown? //Surely not, Dikky.
Enjoy a quiet health drink while surveying that wonderful State.
' Cheers'

Many of the large number of Aboriginal Communities in the Kimberley have legally enforcable alcohol bans. These bans are agreed on by the Communities themselves and often enforced by the elder women.

The main concern up here is of tourists smuggling grog into these Communities for resale at hoped for profit.

Those who do this are very much part of the problem and are likely to be treated accordingly if caught. In fairness to 4WD people etc I should add the offenders seem mostly to be overseas backpackers.

You are required not to consume alcohol whilst passing through these areas but generally the official attitude toward carrying it in reasonable amounts is not fascist. These comments apply to Broome at least.
