The Sandover Highway disects Alyawarr lands, bringing with it prospective tourism opportunities.

The Sandover Highway is already a popular route for 'grey nomads', driving their caravans from Alice Springs to Mount Isa. A caravan park could be one opportunity to explore.

We will explore opportunities for families to host non-Aboriginal people who are wanting a cross-cultural experience and to see some beautiful country.

It should also be recognised that Australia's tourism industry, as a whole, benefits from the interest that that others have in traditional Aboriginal culture. Aboriginal art, as a multi-milion dollar industry provides evidence of this. Such benefits should be considered when negotiating a treaty.
