Ampilatwatja is a voluntary dry community in the heart of Alyawarr country on the Sandover Highway. The Alyawarr people have always lived here and would travel between soaks (water sources) in the hot weather. The people of this region also have close ties to the people who live at Alpurrurulam (Lake Nash), and early in the days of European settlement they would walk to Alpurrurulam to collect rations of food and tobacco.

Local artists are said to “exude a complex and progressive approach to depicting the traditional knowledge of dreaming and country through the translation of water holes and soakages, bush medicines and bush tuckers, mountains, sand hills and ant hills”. Their artworks retain the heritage and feature the cultural history and values of Alyawarra lore.
