The area serviced by the Shire is rich in culture and history. The country offers brilliant blue skies, dramatic red ground and remarkable flora and fauna.

To enjoy your visit please ensure that you familiarise yourself with some general principles for respectful interaction with local people and land. The Ngaanyatjarra people of the Central Desert are strongly committed to their society and culture. They are pleased to have other persons travel through their Lands (Aboriginal reserve). However they ask that you observe the following rules:

All visitors travelling the Great Central Roads require a visiting permit and are advised to respect the Ngaanyatjarra Council by-laws. For more information see Aboriginal Land Permits and Ngaanyatjarra Council by-laws.

Do not photograph Aboriginal persons unless given permission to do so by the individuals.

Bury all camp fires and dispose of your rubbish at one the three roadhouses on the Great Central Road.

Camp no further than 30 metres off the road.
