Description

Access issues inherited from North

As for most of northern Australia, this region is mostly pastoral leases (cattle stations) or Aboriginal freehold. Many pastoral lessees are already diversifying into tourism activities or are interested to do so, including obtaining as required an ILUA or the like. See also https://www.pc.gov.au/research/completed/pastoral-leases, etc.

Climbing thus may well be a sustainable and economically positive tourism activity which, in ILUA-suitable locations, could be not only acceptable to but even appealing to pastoral lessees.

Given that pastoral leases cover around 44% of Australia it would be good to see some headway on access for sustainable and respectful recreational tourism uses such as climbing.

Unlocated crags

This region has an unlocated crag! If you think you know where King George River is located then please take a minute to locate it for the climbing community.

Locating crags gives you Karma points. Please contact us if you have any issues.
