"Punmu is a lovely place to live ... we've got everything we need out here." Cass Nanudie

Punmu is a remote community situated in the Rundall River National Park in the Pilbara region, WA. It has an average transient population of about 150 people, mostly Martu (and some white fellas).

From small beginnings 30 years ago, Punmu is now a well established remote community with an office, a general store and school.
