Aboriginal Air Services. You can arrange a ride on its daily mail and supply flights all over central Australia. They also offer private charters. A round-trip flight to Yuendumu on the mail plane will cost you about US$180. But flights are sometimes sporadic, and it can be easier and cheaper to rent a four-wheel drive vehicle, especially if you are travelling with a group. Phone: 61-8-8953-5000; fax: 61-8-8953-5060.

Northern Territory Tourist Commission. Lists tour operators offering trips to Aboriginal communities.
