Do I need an Uunguu Visitor Pass?



 
 

The Uunguu Visitor Pass (UVP) has now been introduced for Cruise Operators and for Independent Visitors to the Uunguu Coast from a private vessel, sea plane or helicopter. The pass will be implemented for four-wheel drive tour operators and independent 4WD visitors to Ngauwudu (Mitchell Plateau) in the coming months.

If you are visiting Wunambal Gaambera Country as part of a tour group in an ocean vessel, please ensure your cruise/fishing tour operator is a Registered Uunguu Tour Operator and has purchased your UVP on your behalf. 

For Independent Visitors to the Uunguu Coast from a private ocean vessel, sea plane or helicopter, the 2017 introductory UVP Fee is $40 per person for up to 10 days. In 2018 the fee will be $90 per person. Please click here to purchase your UVPs before travel. 

Cruise operators can click here for information on registering for the Uunguu Coast Zone UVP.

The UVP will provide visitors with Traditional Owner permission to enter and experience our Uunguu – “our living home” - with access to 50 authorised visitor locations.                      

The UVP will also enable us Wunambal Gaambera people to manage our land and sea Country for future generations.                        

When visitors buy a UVP, they will be helping us Wunambal Gaambera people to:

  • Build leadership in the tourism industry on our Country.
  • Establish managed visitor sites at key locations, with Uunguu Rangers and Traditional Owners welcoming, guiding and sharing culture with visitors.
  • Create more Uunguu Ranger positions and training, with a focus on tourism.
  • Provide cultural expertise and support for tourism operators.
  • Promote and assist Traditional Owners in developing their own authentic “Uunguu Experience” tourism ventures.When fully implemented, passes will be available for Wunambal Gaambera’s Ngauwudu Road Zone and Uunguu Coast Zone.
