Uunguu Visitor Pass
COVID-19 ACCESS TO WUNAMBAL GAAMBERA COUNTRY
From mid May 2022, Wunambal Gaambera Traditional Owners, along with Wunambal Gaambera Aboriginal Corporation (WGAC), are happy to announce that all Wunambal Gaambera Country Visitor Locations, including Punamii-Uunpuu (Mitchell Falls), are open for visitation to fully vaccinated visitors, showing no COVID-19 symptoms for the 2022 season. Munurru (King Edward River), Mertens (Mitchell River National Park) and Walsh Point campgrounds are also open for visitation in a COVIDSafe way.
The Uunguu Coast Visitor Locations are open to cruise and independent visitors on a ‘no contact’ basis.
Our highest priority remains to ensure that we all, including our remote communities, remain safe and continue to follow the directions of the Australian and State Governments to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
WGAC will review the constant, changing nature of COVID-19 and if required, for the safety of Wunambal Gaambera people, staff and visitors, close at-risk visitor locations.

UUNGUU VISITOR PASS
The Uunguu Visitor Pass (UVP) is now required for each visitor by road, air and coast, enabling people to enjoy an authentic Uunguu experience – sharing in our unique Wanjina Wunggurr culture and beautiful savannah and coastal landscapes.
If you are an independent traveller and visiting by 4WD or aircraft, you need a Ngauwudu Road Zone pass, which includes access to the Punamii-Uunpuu (Mitchell Falls) walking track track and Mitchell Plateau Airfield (MIP). Family passes are available.
If you are an independent traveller visiting by boat, sea plane or helicopter you need an Onshore Access pass for the Uunguu Coast Zone.

The UVP enables Wunambal Gaambera people to look after our land and saltwater Country for future generations.
When you buy a UVP, you will be helping Wunambal Gaambera people achieve significant Wunambal Gaambera healthy country targets:
- Build leadership in the tourism industry on our Country.

- Grow our Uunguu Ranger Team’s visitor management capacity.
- Provide cultural expertise and support for registered tour operators.
- Develop our own authentic “Uunguu Experience” tourism products and ventures.
- Expand, improve and maintain visitor access infrastructure and facilities.
