This is Aboriginal owned land, managed by Yalata Community Inc (YCI) and the Yalata Land Management Unit for conservation of biodiversity and the sustainability of traditional cultures. We are proud of our land and are happy to share the experience of it with you. We hope you will enjoy your visit.
The impact of the steadily increasing number of people visiting Yalata’s beaches has become more significant. One strategy to ensure these recreational activities cause minimum impact has been to control people numbers through a permit system.
The permit system provides other benifits. There are rules and regulations which are abnormal to the surrounding lands so through the issuing of permits we are better able to ensure visitors are aware of their responsibilities. The conditions of entry are listed below.
The funds collected aid the land management activities in the area as well as providing rangers to ensure the lands are protected and the health and safety of visitors is overseen.
To avoid disappointment bookings for campsites should be made in advance.
The current state of bookings can be seen using the booking viewer on this page. The various camp sites are shown on our camping page.
