Ilkurlka Roadhouse is a non-for-profit community enterprise managed by Paupiyala Tjarutja. Volunteers are critical in maintaining this service. At different times of the year the Roadhouse enlists the support of volunteers to assist with running the outstation and projects.
The tasks are widely varied: serving customers, maintaining equipment, meeting the mail plane, working with Anangu in running activities and special projects.
Volunteering is a unique opportunity to work in a remote yet culturally strong community. You will have the chance to interact with the traditional owners of Tjuntjuntjara and listen to their stories around the camp fire.
Many of our volunteers have returned over the years and many lifelong friendships have been made. There is a special bond between people who live and work in Spinifex Country, formed through isolation and its challenges.
It is a part of Australia that all too few people will get the chance to experience!

Ilkurlka update 26 December 2021
There are border restrictions which restrict entry across the South Australian border into Western Australia.
As there is also uncertainty around the spread of COVID19 in the Perth region, we have taken the decision to close the roadhouse during January 2022.
We regret that we have had to close during January but we must manage the risk of COVID19 entering our communities.
