Community Services

Australia Post

The Council has an Australia Post licensed post office in Yuendamu. This post office provides a complete service to the community. The Council also runs community postal agencies in all of its communities, with the exception of Ti-Tree.

Centrelink

Centrelink agents operate in eight shire communities. Full Centrelink services are provided, including self-help and telephone access to Centrelink help lines.

Arts and Culture

There are three art centres in the shire, though the art centre at Atitjere is the only one under the direct management of the shire. A dedicated group of about 40 artists create paintings, ornaments and jewellery items that are mainly sold to tourists. Community Media Remote broadcasting takes place across the shire through a partnership with PAW Media.

Violence and Mediation

Two very successful programs run at Yuendumu, working closely with Night Patrol Services to enhance community safety.  A mediation service has also commenced in Willowra.

Library Services

The Council has two libraries, one in Ti-Tree and one in Lajamanu. The services in the libraries are improved all the time and both libraries now have access to My Story social history databases.
