Punmu Community

The Punmu community is supported by Puntukurnu Aboriginal Medical Service through a Remote Area Nurse that is based in the community clinic. We were able to open a new clinic building in Punmu in late 2018 which will enable Puntukurnu Aboriginal Medical Service to continue supporting the Punmu community. A GP visits Punmu on a regular basis to compliment the care provided by the Remote Area Nurse stationed there, together with other visiting services.

The Punmu Community is situated in the northern part of Karlamilyi National Park, on the edge of Lake Dora. This lake is a seasonal salt lake which lies between the vegetated sand fields of the Great Sandy and Gibson Deserts. The community was established in 1981 and has grown considerably since. Apart from our clinic the community features a community store and office and a school.
