A permit for the Nantawarrina Indigenous Protected Area costs $30 per vehicle, including the first night camping.
But how much should I pay for a recumbent push bike?
There is no public transport.
A push bike is for kids.
Those who venture into the outback on a push bike must be very brave or insane, or both.
The ACE Puma draws quite a crowd here. A Dutch recumbent? That suits our rugged outback? Really?

Enter Nantawarrina without a permit and get a hefty $8000 fine.
The devastated land was returned tot the Adnyamathanda, the 'rock people'.
Men and nature are no longer in battle. They cooperate. The land recovers.
Nepabunna has a plant nursery.
The Adnyamathanda grow native plants that find a place in nature.
Kangaroos, yellow-footed rock wallabies, emus have plenty of food.
Feral goats are still a plague.
The care takers round up the goats and sell them overseas, away from Australia!

You will travel on good country
That recommendation alone is sufficient reason to go.
But what about my recumbent and the $30 permit for a vehicle?
She just puts a stroke at "No of vehicles" and writes 'push bike'.
Good, that is taken care of. And it nicely remains poly interpretable.
That is too easy for her.
A recumbent is half a vehicle.
So, no $30 but $15.
A car has 4 wheels, my recumbent 2.
Hurray, the next couple of days I'll travel in Nantawarrina, fully legal on my half vehicle!
