Welcome to Tjukurla

Tjukurla is located in the “tali” (sandhill) country on the edge of Lake Hopkins, halfway between Warakurna Community in WA and Kintore (Walungurru) Community in the NT. The residents are mostly Ngaanyatjarra speaking people and many have significant family ties with families living in Kiwirrkurra.


Tjukurla is located in the “tali” (sandhill) country on the edge of Lake Hopkins, halfway between Warakurna Community in WA and Kintore (Walungurru) Community in the NT. The Sandy Bight Junction road links Tjukurla to Kiwirrkura, however this "short cut" usually takes experienced 4wd drivers 6-8 hours to travel (approximately 100km).


In the early 80’s a bore was put down near the present Tjukurla Community as part of the outstation movement for Docker River community. In mid 1981 an outstation was established at Kintore which provided an opportunity for those living at Papunya to move west, closer to their traditional lands. From Kintore many people moved to Tjukurla as that community’s infrastructure developed. Residents also came from Warakurna and Docker River, and a few came from Warburton. By 1986 the community was permanently occupied and in the following year it became incorporated.
