Kunytjanu, South Australia

Lua error: callParserFunction: function "#coordinates" was not found. Kunytjanu (commonly written Kuntjanu) is an Aboriginal outstation and waterhole in northwestern South Australia. It is serviced from the community of Pipalyatjara to the north. It is located on the road between Pipalyatjara and Watarru. The outstation was established in 1975, along with Iltur, Walytjatjata, Kunamata and several others that used Pipalyatjara as a base.[1][2] It received a grant for development from the government in 1978.[3]

The area around Kunytjanu is connected with several Dreamings. The waterhole itself is associated with the Lua error in package.lua at line 80: module 'Module:Language/data/iana scripts' not found., the Dreaming of the water-snake or Rainbow Serpent.[4]
