Canning Stock Route 2011 - Wiluna
Tour Inclusions: Camping and National Park Fees, Aboriginal Land Transit fee
Petrol vehicles must be able to carry sufficient fuel for 1900 kms of slow desert driving and will require a fuel drop at Well 23.
Please note: in 2008 no fuel drop was available and a discussion is underway to re-instate such in 2009. If this does not go ahead there will be options to either refuel in Newman, Cotton Creek (Diesel only) or — Kunawarritji Community.
From Yulara we make our way to Giles weather station via Docker River, from there to Warburton Roadhouse, Everard Junction, Carnegie Station and finish the first leg of this journey in Wiluna. We will have a rest day. By now we have traversed some of the tracks built by Australia's last Pioneer - Len Beadell.
We are allowing 6 days.
Second Section: From here we will encounter many difficult to traverse sand dunes. As Mr Canning established this stock route he also had to ensure a continous water supply, hence the many wells to follows.
