Uunguu Visitor Pass – Registration Application for Tour Operators

with Wunambal Gaambera Aboriginal Corporation (WGAC) 

Wunambal Gaambera Uunguu people (native title holders) require that from January 1, 2018 all Tour Operators require a valid UVP Registration to secure Traditional Owner permission for their passengers to access Visitor Locations on Wunambal Gaambera Country (see maps). Every tour passenger must be covered by a valid UVP, purchased by their Tour Operator, prior to entry to Wunambal Gaambera Country.

Only Registered Uunguu Tour Operators can purchase Uunguu Visitor Passes (UVPs) for their tour passengers. (Crew members do not require a UVP.)

Wunambal Gaambera people welcome guests, passengers and crew of registered Uunguu Tour Operators.

UVP Registration Applications

A Tour Operator must submit an on-line Registration application to WGAC via the form below. Registrations are now open. Successful applicants will be issued an Interim Registration Certificate and an invoice to pay the relevant UVP Fee within 28 days (see the fee table below). On receipt of payment, WGAC will replace the Interim Registration Certificate with a UVP Registration Certificate valid for five (5) years, subject to compliance with the  Tour Operators Terms and Conditions

Registered Uunguu Tour Operators will be required to update registration details by February 28 annually and promptly advise WGAC of any further registration changes or non compliance with Tour Operators' Terms and Conditions.
