By , May 28, 2010 4:26 pm

ss-112 AWS has been providing advice and support in development of small scale, tourism ventures on Angas Downs Indigenous Protected Area (IPA) by members of the Imanpa community who own the property. Angas Downs is on the main road to Uluri National Park and Watarrka National Park and has many thousands of visitors cross it each week.

AWS has produced a set of posters to be displayed in the Mt Ebenezer Roadhouse on the Lasseter Hwy. They detail the IPA and management, the rich natural resources, ranger works, tourism enterprises, and pastoral and aboriginal histories. This resource provides information to tourists and local Anangu people from Imanpa about Angas Downs Indigenous Protected Area.

Led by members of the Imanpa community, AWS has helped coordinate a few trial tour runs through the property including Rotary groups interested in culture, education and philanthropic activities overseas University Students interested in environmental and wildlife studies.
AWS particpated in a workshop called ‘Stepping Stones’ at the Imanpa community in May 2010 to help develop tourism on Angas Downs along the lines of tag along 4WD cultural/historical tours and student groups, using a similar structure to Anangu Tours at Uluru.
