Who can tell us what python this is, found on Wunambal Gaambera Country in the far north Kimberley?  If you really want to show off, grab a copy of our Uunguu Plants and Animals book online from www.WunambalGaambera.org.au or drop into the Kimberley Bookshop if you are in Broome and buy yourself a copy, then you can tell us what type of snake it is in 4 languages; Wunambal, Gaambera, Latin and English....  Or Uunguu Plants and Animals Book has many of the species on our country and includes their names (where we know it) in our languages as well.  #wunambal #gaambera Photo by Russell Ord - Photography

That would be the very rare rough-scale python which I had the pleasure of finding on a night walk at the top of Mitchell Falls!

Keep an eye out for gurri or spiders when visiting Wunambal Gaambera Country.  We found this beautiful species under a piece of bark when we were doing weed work earlier in the year.  We have many incredible plants and animals on our country and have recorded them in our book, Uunguu Plants and Animals.  You can now buy our book on the website;  https://wunambalgaambera.org.au/about/books/  Link in our bio.  #spiders #wunambalgaamberacountry #healthycountry #arachnids @bushheritageaus @rachbeadle @kimberleylandcouncil

Spiders are amazing

Punamii-Uunpuu (Mitchell Falls), looking incredible. Our Uunguu Rangers and DBCA Rangers have been slashing walk trails at Punamii-Uunpuu in preparation for the upcoming tourist season.

Did you know Punamii-Uunpuu is a #NationalHeritage listed place and is home to the powerful Wunggurr (creator snakes) seen in the Falls’ rainbows.

If you visit this area, keep an eye out for warrana (wedge-tailed eagles 🦅 ), dalal (rare black grass wrens), wobarda (water goanna) and monyjon (the endemic Little Rock wallaby).

If you are visiting the North Kimberley, Wunambal Gaambera Country make sure you have your Uunguu Visitor Pass and you check the roads are open; for more information

Wunambal Gaambera Aboriginal Corporation would like to advise that prescribed burning commenced on 16 April and will continue until 30 June conducted in accordance with the 2021 WGAC Annual Fire Plan. 
Fire operations from 1 April to 14 January are covered by permits under the Bush Fires Act and regulations require that neighbours be notified and you have been identified as either a neighbouring landowner or other stakeholder. Please assist us in this by informing us of any changes in your preferred contact and contact details. 
Wunambal Gaambera Aboriginal Corporation is responsible for exclusive possession lands in the WW Uunguu Native Title Determination as shown by the areas shaded grey on the attached map. It includes the northern parts of the Mitchell R National Park, Lawley R National Park, Camp Creek Conservation Park and part of the Laterite Conservation Park  as well as Aboriginal Reserves. 
Our ‘Right Way Fire’ program aims to reduce the impact of late dry season wildfires on cultural sites, biodiversity and infrastructure. Burning will be done through a combination of ground burning (along road and track networks) and aerial burning from a helicopter and plane. WGAC also undertakes some joint fire activities with the Department of Biodiversity Conservation and Attractions.  Care will be taken to ensure that fire does not cross cadastral boundaries or threaten infrastructure and assets. If you are a landowner we would encourage you to comply with the Bush Fires Act 1954 and install firebreaks and have adequate equipment and training to respond to wildfires and provide reciprocal notification of your proposed burns. The Shire of Wyndham East Kimberley and Department of Fire & Emergency Services can provide advice on these matters.  Fire information will be provided on our website (www.wunambalgaambera.org.au ), including fire notices and information for visitors.

Our Uunguu Rangers are further developing their capacity with a recent coxswain training at Mungalalu Truscott.

Our Rangers use their training to pilot vessels which is needed for our Wundaagu (saltwater) healthy country work.

2021 will be an incredible year to experience Punamii-Uunpuu (Mitchell Falls), Little Mertens Falls, Big Mertens Falls and our rivers in full flow on Wunambal Gaambera Country.  We are experiencing above average Wunju (wet season) rains. 
This means the roads into Ngauwudu (Mitchell Plateau) – Gibb River Road, Kalumburu Road and Port Warrender Road – are expected to be delayed in opening.  We expect to open Ngauwudu, including Munurru (King Edward River) Campground on 1st May, 2021 (provided the roads are open). Please check our Facebook posts during April for updates and road conditions before you start your north Kimberley journey.
