Volunteers

 

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!

Welcome to Ilkurlka Visitor Centre!

ILKURLKA

 

Ilkurlka partially reopens!

As of 15 August 2020 Ilkurlka will reopen to travellers whose journey commences in Western Australia. This follows the relaxation of the WA remote Aboriginal communities regulations for Ilkurlka (although restrictions remain in place for other communities).

Given our limited stocks of PPE we would appreciate travellers bringing their own face masks if possible. We can supply hand sanitiser and disposable gloves at the roadhouse. The spread of COVID19 to our remote communities is still a major concern.

For travellers heading from Western Australia to South Australia along the Anne Beadell Highway, permits are required in South Australia from Maralinga Tjarutja, the Woomera Defence Area, Mamungari conservation park and Tallaringa conservation park . A permit is also required for travel between Yeo and Yamarna along the Anne Beadell Highway in Western Australia. Please see the travel tab for links on applying for these permits.

Please note that Ilkurlka will not be accessible from the east because of the WA border closure. The border is being monitored and the WA police will take action if anyone crosses the border from the east without having a permit issued by the WA government.

Penalties for illegally crossing the WA border from the east are severe – up to a $50,000 fine and/or twelve month’s imprisonment.
