Welcome to
Parnngurr Community School

This is a spacious landscape of red sand, spinifex plains, honey grevillia and desert oaks under an azure sky.

Parnngurr is a remote West Australian Indigenous Community located 370kms East of Newman, on the edge of the Great Sandy Desert. It is the home of 150 Martu people whose ancestors have been here since the beginning of the Dreaming. The community is built in the shadow of twin hills with particular significance to Martu, at the southern end of the Karlamilyi (Rudall River) National Park.
