Uunguu Visitor Pass - Suspended until further notice. 

Due to the current global coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, and the announcement of the Australian and WA Governments restricting all non-essential travel, coupled with the closure of the WA borders, our sense of social responsibility in playing a role in minimizing the spread of the COVID-19 and protecting Wunambal Gaambera people, WGAC is suspending the sales of our Uunguu Visitor Pass until further notice.

This includes suspension of passes, effective from Thursday 26 March 2020, for independent travellers and tour operators. You can no longer buy Uunguu Visitor Passes until further notice.

The following Wunambal Gaambera Country (North Kimberley) locations are closed until further notice:

• All Uunguu Coast (Wunambal and Gaambera Zones) Visitor Locations
• All Ngauwudu (Mitchell Plateau) Road Zone Visitor Locations
• Punamii-Uunpuu (Mitchell Falls) Visitor Location
• Port Warrender Road at Munurru (King Edward River) Crossing,
• Munurru, Mertens (Mitchell River National Park) and Walsh Point Campgrounds,

Our highest priority is to ensure that we all remain safe and continue to follow the directions of the Australian and State Governments to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

Given this extraordinary emergency, WGAC staff will be contacting people who have already purchased a 2020 season UVP and not yet visited the Uunguu Coast or Ngauwudu, to offer either a credit for later use after the COVID-19 emergency situation is lifted or for this one off situation provide a refund.

WGAC will review the constant, changing situation. We will keep everyone informed and look forward to welcoming and sharing Wunambal Gaambera Country with you in the future.
