I have just found out that Transit/camping permits for Tallaringa Conservation Park can be bought, on the spot, at Underground Books,Lot 4 Post office Hill Road, Coober Pedy. 08 8672 5558.
This certainly beats having to wait for permits to come through the post.

Does anyone have a shortcut the getting the permit from the Maralinga-Tjartja Council. We are not going through Ceduna where the office is. I applied 2 weeks ago and have be advised that this can take up to 6 weeks. With our schedule in the not finalised stage, long winded set ups like this make it very difficult.
Thanks Rob.
PS ExplorOz staff - I thought the Trek notes you have on Anne Beadell could be updated with above info on Tallaringa Cons Park.

I rang Maralinga T and they faxed me the forms which I filled in and then faxed back and then they faxed the permit back...all within 3 hours.

In contrast it took 10 weeks to get a permit out of the Central Land Council albeit to an out of the norm place.

If you already have a Desert Parks Pass you do not need a camping permit for Tallaringa.

We will be out there in about 3 weeks time.

Oh yes, there is also a permit requirement from the NT/WA Border Neale Junction to Yamarna from the Dept of Indigenous Affairs, Perth.

Stupid permit system, I hate it with passion.

Thanks Willem,
I will give Maralinga a call tomorrow. Wouldn't it be nice if they did things via email!

Re: permit required for Neale Junction to Yamarna
I was looking at the site for Dept of Indigenous Affairs and read about this one - applied by email and was issued permit by return email. How easy it can be!

This one also needs to be put on the ExplorOz Trek notes for the Anne Beadell if possible.

Willem, politically AFAIK the permit system is being *looked at*. There are suggestions that it's undesireable in some ways. Mumblings about power and the codes of silence etc .
It may well be that in the future the system might change. Unfortunately it will be too late for me :(((

I depends on how well you fill the form up and if you are just doing the A-B or stepping off along the way.

They have a committee at the community which vets anything unusual.

For sure, it helps to know people, if you're planning anything adventurous.

Ciao for now
Andrew.

Andrew, I suspect that it pays to know someone there full stop. Even the A-B thing requires stopping in a community occasionally, and one never knows when things could go wrong. It's human nature to be more friendly with someone we know, or know of I guess.
I always try and look at it from the reverse point of view. If there were a tourist trail across my backyard, I'd be reluctant to approve anyone who'd put my nose out of joint the year before.

Yep - I stop and talk to everyone - even the drover's dog (and usually take a photo).

Never know when you might need them.
