Hi All

Does anyone know about the supposed closure of the ABH from 20th August to
2nd September. We were planning a trip across here at this time. But our permit to travel has been rejected. Any input welcome.

Thanks

Shaker several permits are required from Land Owners, Defense Dept and SA Parks to travel the AB, hence the question from Bow & Nan was quite reasonable.

I wondered the same thing.

Hi Ted

You have me very intrigued????

Which one of the 5 required permits has been rejected.

We are out along some of the Anne Beadell at those same dates as well. The sections that we will be along only requires 2 permits and I have one back already and the other one that can take up to 6 weeks....well I will have to see.

What part is supposed to be closed????


Awaiting on your reply.



Cheers

Hi Ted

I must have luck on my side. I have just checked my permit, and my stated dates for travelling through the Woomera Section was the 18 to the 20 and it was approved.

Cheers

If you go in via Cook and Vokes Hill Corner and turn left, you will avoid the Woomera area.
Great drive too, very different and no corrugations :-)

Where did you see corrogations last year Peter?

We went from Nullabor roadhouse north via Knowles Cave to Cook.
Much nicer than the main road all the way to Cook.

Some pics in this slide show....

Hi Ted,

I spoke to someone from the ADF today, and yes there will be a closure on the Anne Beadell Highway in August. I don't have the exact dates, but will have all of the information next week. Will publish as soon as we receive it.

Hi Ted,

I have received some information from an ExplorOz Member who is also responsible for Defence’s activities at Woomera and the Woomera Prohibited Area. He states:

"In short, access to the ABH will be restricted by Defence for the period 20 August to 02 September. This is likely to occur twice a year and the closure dates are published on the site well in advance (in March each year for the following financial year).

Information about Woomera will always be publicly available on this site."

The permit I have from Defence (free and only took a couple of days) for ABH last week mentions 'exclusion periods' and tells you to go to a Defence web site for more details http://www.defence.gov.au/woomera/exclusionperiods.htm. The site has a map and the dates the ABH will be closed.

When I spoke with the Defence people at Woomera they were very helpful and explained that the exclusions are for safety reasons. They also said that they have patrols throughout the Woomera area and they check permits. I think the five minutes of paperwork for a permit is better than a fine. Particularly if it stops them from dropping something on us.
