Alcohol at Kalumburu
by: Birgit

Roger, basically, when you arrive at Kalumburu you should not have alcohol on board. Simple as that.

Only buy what you'll drink before you get there.

It's a dry community, so if you do get caught there will be serious consequences.

Having said that, people do smuggle in drinks for themselves all the time, camp far enough away from the mission, are very discreet about it and they get away with it.

Hiding it very well and not accessing it while there would possibly be an option if you get stuck with stuff on board. However, if breaking the rules is worth the risk is something you have to decide.
