Summary Information:
The District Council of Coober Pedy and the Antakirinja Land Council have entered into an agreement to jointly manage the Breakaways Reserve. The Agreement provides for the protection of the Breakaways Reserve, and for new employment opportunities for local Aboriginal people in eco-tourism ventures.
Detailed Information:
The Breakaways Reserve is home to the Muntuntjara and Antakirinja people. It is a popular tourist destination with an estimated 150,000 to 200,000 tourist visitors each year. This has led to concern about protection of the scenic beauty, Aboriginal heritage and other interesting natural features of the Reserve, and the development of a Management Plan between the District Council of Coober Pedy and the Antakirinja Land Council. Development of the plan followed consultation with local communities and business and tourism interests and it has the support of the Northern Regional Development Board.

The Management Plan and Joint Management Agreement will ensure the ecologically sustainable management of the Reserve and protect sites of significance. Aboriginal rangers are involved in the running of the Reserve.
