Welcome to Yalata

We are Pitjantjatjara Anangu. Our families descend from the desert people in the north and north-west.

The Great Rainbow Serpent Wanampi shaped the landscape from the red spinifex country in the north to the Head of Bight creating rolling hills, caves and lakes in his journey toward the ocean.

In 1996, the Yalata Reserve was proclaimed an Indigenous Protected Area (IPA) being an area of distinct character having significant ecological and cultural value. The reserve holds the largest expanse of untouched coastal mallee in the south hemisphere. Under agreements between Commonwealth and State Government agencies, Yalata Community Incorporated (YCI) is committed to conserving the unique coastal and inland landscapes on the Yalata IPA.
