Martu live in towns and communities across Western Australia – in the Kimberley in Balgo, Wangkajungka, Bayulu, Looma, Yandearra, and Bidyadanga, and in the Pilbara in Jigalong, Irrungadji, Strelley and Warralong, Newman, Pippingarra, and Port Hedland.

Martu have established three on-country communities in Punmu, Parnngurr and Kunawarritji.

Parnngurr and Punmu are located within Karlamilyi National Park and Kunawarritji sits next to Kuju Yirwata (the Canning Stock Route).

At a meeting in December 2021, JYAC and the WA government agreed to negotiate for these three communities to have proper land title so Martu can decide their future development.
