Had any luck Beet?

i been doin a bit of diggin on this one and not having much luck finding anyone who's been thru there since 2009...

seems like you cant get a permit to 'transit', must be doing some legit work out there..

quote from APY permit form : "No Transit Permits will be issued for tourists/travellers wishing to pass through any part of the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands "

seems the fine is only "upto $1000" which would probably still be value for money

Found this today love the cost per vehicle and per person
THOUGHT AUSTRALIA WAS A FREE COUNTRY, OBVIOUSLY I WAS WRONG

WHAT A SCAM

the Anne Beadell corner to Surveyors general corner would be a fantastic ride
A pity the politics has ruined it for the fairer skinned Aussies






Population - Place NameSurveyors general corner

Location

202.57kms West of Kulpitjata
243.12kms East of Warburton
304.18kms South of Kintore

Address & Contact EditEdit

Petermann NT 0872
Phone: N/A
Email: N/A
Web: N/A

Information

The corner consists of two actual markers separated by a distance of 75 metres. this creates a dogleg in the WA border. It is approximately seven km north east of Irrunytju community. Both are on the land of Mr Eddy and you must be escorted to the markers by one of the traditional owners. Arrangements (permits) have to be obtained prior to heading to Irrunytju (Wingellina) thru the West Australian DIA website. Prior to heading that way, ring the store or community centre to ensure that people will be around and available at the time of your arrival. Once arrived at Wingellina, head to the community centre and pay the appropriate fee (At July 07 - it was $100 per vehicle and $20 per person) and someone will be located to escort you (usually Mr Eddy or Mr Donald FERGUSON, both community elders). Both are very helpful and will give you permission to take photographs.

Mt Davies Rd

G'day Beet,
After you mentioned this the other day I had a bit of a look. At least 750 kms, and if doing a lot of 2nd & 3rd gear sand work, reckon a range of 1,000 kms would be required. Scared me off. Don't know of anyone who's been through... maybe Cecil or Tony B??? The permit situation doesn't look promising.
I'm taking the easy way - Gary Junction Rd.
