The human population of the Great Victoria Desert is extremely small.
The majority of human inhabitants are Indigenous Australians living in small communities.
The main communities in the region are Aparawatatja (Fregon, pop.310), Pukatja (Ernabella, pop. 470), Amata (pop.370), Iwantja (Indulkana, pop.320), Mimili (pop. 220) and Pipalyatjara (pop.140).
There are no major roads through the Great Victoria Desert and no large towns or cities.
The nearest tropical rainforest is in north Queensland, thousands of kilometres away. Even by plane t would take days to travel between the two areas due to the remoteness of the Great Victoria Desert.
