New Visitor Pass Required for Mitchell Plateau

  • Posted by on 19 December 2017

From 1 January 2018, if you are planning to visit the Mitchell Plateau in the far north west of the Kimberley, each traveller will now need an Uunguu Visitor Pass (UVP). 

  • If you are an independent traveller and visiting by 4WD or aircraft, you need a Ngauwudu Road Zone pass.  
  • If you are an independent traveller coming by boat, sea plane or helicopter you need an Onshore Access pass for the Uunguu Coast Zone.
  • If you are an independent bush walker you need a Bush walker pass.    Please also check the approved Bush walking Corridors.
The pass will enable the Wunambal Gaambera people to manage the land and sea Country for future generations.     
When visitors buy a UVP, they will be helping Wunambal Gaambera people to:
  • Build leadership in the tourism industry on Country.
  • Establish managed visitor sites at key locations, with Uunguu Rangers and Traditional Owners welcoming, guiding and sharing culture.
  • Grow the Uunguu Ranger program with a tourism focus.
  • Provide cultural expertise and support for tour operators.
  • Develop authentic “Uunguu Experience” tourism ventures.

This pass is in addition to the WA Department of Biodiversity, Conservation & Attractions, Parks & Wildlife Service Park Pass 

PLEASE NOTE: There is no public internet/phone access on Wunambal Gaambera Country.  It is important that you download/print all relevant passes, maps, guides and information BEFORE travel.
