Access, Restrictions & Permits

If any decent road map of outback Australia is examined, numerous tracks will be marked as “Permit Required”. Other tracks are  marked as
“Private Road” or “Aboriginal Business Road” and even “Restricted Access”. Yet others are marked “For Use in Emergencies Only”, or “Wet Weather Access Only”. John Greig discusses what this all means and the ramifications that it can pose for outback travellers.

Permits for States & Territories

We have just revamped our Permits page by creating a whole topic area with separate pages for each state/territory. The information was adapted from a document by John Greig and the Toyota Land Cruiser Club Of Australia (Sydney). Information will be consistently updated and can be used as a guide to assist you in gaining the right permits.

Updated Trek Note

Canning Stock Route

As you may or may not by now know, sites along the Canning Stock Route are going through a major audit. This is a 3 year project however in the
meantime, there are numerous locations where access is restricted such as theCalvert Range. These areas hold sentimental significance to our indigenous Australians and to preserve this, a permit system has been introduced. There are still some issues that need resolutions, so we will keep you up to date when they come to light. The Canning Stock Route is one of the most popular treks read by ExplorOz audiences and due to therestrictions now in place; our trek note has been modified accordingly.

Stamp Duty Abolished for Campers
From 1st July 2007, the state government of Western Australia has abolished stamp duty for caravans and camper trailers. This now brings Western Australia’s taxation treatment of caravans andcamper trailers into line with that in a number of other states so there’s never been better incentive to buy a camper trailer or caravan with the potential for thousands of dollars of savings to be made.
