Comment on Mereenie Loop Road on the never-never by Greg Simon.

Federal Police uses drone to spy on tourists
I was confronted by AFP there as well, on my own, taking some photos in the park.
They know you’re there as a spy camera on the rocks to the west is aimed at the only parking spot in the carpark.
A satellite is also above and they also know when you turn into Hatt Road from the Stuart Highway.
So much for tourism.

Developing a treasure: 10 year East Macs plan
@ Jacka: Exactly, this whole area should be excised from the pastoral estate and gazetted as common for the people (not cattle) so that people are the beneficiaries, not just a few with vested interests.

Here we go again – who is this Central Desert Regional council?
This is exactly what we don’t need. The area doesn’t need “developing” nor “managing”.
It has managed itself for billions of years to effectively become a place of natural environment of which there is little left remaining for people to relax in.
Before you know it, we’ll have an international airport with all the paraphernalia associated with that, resulting in yet another “managed” controlled tourist enterprise.
No, Thank You!
