Tamala station will remain closed for camping until further notice.

Tamala’s request for a new camping licence has been declined.

We have been advised that we need another Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA) that specifically includes the camping area before any application will be considered. Acquiring an ILUA involves extensive consultation and a protracted legal process. This means we will have to remain closed to the public for the duration of the process that may well take two years to resolve.

We are committed to engaging with the relevant government department to meet the necessary requirements and regain a camping licence if possible.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
