GNTAC wishes to inform members of changes regarding access to, and use of facilities at
the Bottom Yumba. GNTAC has brought in a new policy to guide how the Yumba is
accessed and a fee structure for those wishing to use Yumba facilities for camping or events.

The policy applies to all Gunggari Native Title Holders, Gunggari Native Title Aboriginal
Corporation members, and others, and to all proposed activities whether they be:

– commercial;
– community-focused;
– cultural;
– personal nature; or
– any agreed upon activities

The changes have become necessary due to increased insurance costs and the insurance company’s requirement that GNTAC take steps to minimise loss and damage to Yumba property and assets. Unfortunately, this means that the Yumba gates will be locked while the office is unattended. Campers and others wishing to visit the Yumba will now have to give notice of intended visits and be required to pay for some activities and for using some of the facilities at the Yumba. GNTAC will charge fees on a user-pays basis, to cover the cost of electricity, water, rates and insurances.

The new Yumba Access and Fee Structure Policy and Yumba Registration form can be accessed in the highlighted attachment links below:
