Permits

I need some help with regards to the permits you require to visit desert areas. We are not good at stick to planned routes and just wing it. I would like to know can you get a pass for the whole state or territory you visit and if so does this include camping fees and where do u apply.

Hi katz

If you click on the link that has come up within your post, this site has a lot about permits. Permits are specific to the source, eg SA desert parks pass, Aboriginal lands transit permit. No, they do not include camping, unless free camping is authorised as it is on a number of remote routes.

Different states and territories have different rules Katz.

You will probably have to be more specific in your query.

I'm reasonably up to speed with the ever evolving system in WA, and currently you cannot get a single pass/permit/verbal for everywhere (not even if you're indigenous)

In WA I would contact the Dept. of Indigenous affairs in Perth for info on 90% of the areas that most people would visit.

We are looking at the Gunbarrel Highway, Tanami Track, Carnegie and the Canning Stock Route and anywhere in between that is worth visiting in WA.

Please check provided details yourself - I take no responsibility etc..

For Gunbarrel Highway:

From Victory Downs via Mulga Park to the border of SA no permit is required.

All of the South Australian section (Pitjantjatjara Land) requires permisssion which is not easily gained. See HERE for details and phone numbers.

The section from the border of SA and WA to the Heather Highway turnoff requires a permit. See HERE for applying online and for queries on contacting DIA for the area near the border.

From the Heather Highway to Carnegie no permit is required.

For Canning Stock Route:

Technically no permit is required for the Canning Stock Route as it has been excluded from all the native title determinations that it passes through. I will let you decide whether this means the 5 mile easement or the track itself. However traveling to adjacent areas will require a permit.
The Australia Four Wheel Drive Council (for whatever reason??) issues the permits HERE

For Tanami Track:

No permits are required. See HERE

Carnegie is the homestead at the end of the Gunbarrel Highway, no permit is required.

Hope this all helps.

Regards

Hi Katz,

Canning Stock Route is handled by Australian National Four Wheel Drive Network http://www.anfwdc.asn.au/
costs $100.00 - well worth it given the amount of information you get and there are some really good facilities there now - for where it is.

We came back down the Tanami Road and as far as I know you don't need a permit as I believe it is a gazetted road

Cheers

Colin

Katz78 I think there have been some changes and local communities are to be more involved with the issue of CSR permits. Have a look at this thread about changes.
