I used Google and read the Exploroz trek notes. Over the last few years I have had conflicting reports. Yes -- you need two. Yes -- you only need to get one and finally No -- you do not need any. No dates or disclaimers on any of the stuff I found. But lets move on. Maybe it is just my fiddly finger on the keyboard.

I even put "Canning" into the text search in this fourm. Cop this NO RESPONSES. Now that must be wrong.

Firstly:
What is the latest and if a pass or more is required, where do I go to get a pass for July this year.

Secondly:
What was wrong with my "Canning" search to not get ANY responses?

Hi Phil

Search function appears to be down (no search for any subject works). I shall let Dave know (but maybe maintenance or something).

Cheers

I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874

...I have been reliably informed that it is a "temporary bug" - will be fixed in an hour or two.

we did the canning 2013 and were asked to see our passes at Georgia Bore by the Park Ranges.

Ahh excellent

What passes and from where did you get them? For the whole length etc.

I don't mind the passes and reasonable fees but the information on the internet annoys me when data is not dated.

CSR Permit Wells 5-15 and 40-51 cost $50
permits@canningstockroute.net.au>

CSR Permit for Wells 16 to 39 costs $100 can be applied for individually or as a group via the FWD Australia website
(http://4wdaustralia.asn.au/canning_stock_route.php)

May seem pricey but they have installed a lot of drop toilets particularly in the South which makes life pleasant and the camp sites seem to be well maintained, so the money is being spent on route updates.
And also nice when the Park Rangers walk up and ask to sight the permits to be able to produce them.
Hope this helps
June

Phil,
We travelled the complete length of the Canning (Billiuna to Willuna) and we did need TWO PERMITS as in my previous post.
We travelled in July and it was great, so many wildflowers, and the country was looking a picture.
Enjoy your trip.

Thanks June

I believe that it is the same this year. Plenty of time for them to change though.

Have a good one

Hi Andy

Would you m,ind checking out Junes post above and confirm that the canningstockroute.net.au site is where you got yours or that it is the same source as yours.

If so then that will do us.

The cost is irrelevant when you consider the toilets etc and even how much we spend even getting there

Hi Phil,
No I didn't get it from the 4wd mob. Here is a link for you http://permits.canningstockroute.net.au/Permit/Details.aspx?NEW=1 I came in from the Kidson track but it covers all of the Canning stock route. Only need one permit for the lot.
Take your time and you will enjoy it. And I know it is not possible but if you can do it just after rain it is worth the wait.
I camped at Port Hedland and waited for the rain and them went out. It was worth the wait. Hope you enjoy the trip.
Cheers Andy

This permit covers Well 5 to 51 inclusive, why is it claimed another permit is also required at an additional $50?
This one is issued on behalf of the Western Deserts Aboriginal Lands Council also.

Andy

The very first paragraph in the intruductions says:
Quote
Welcome to the Canning Stock Route (CSR) automated permit system. This system is for people wishing to travel the sections of the CSR between Wells 5-15 and Wells 40-51 for tourism and/or sightseeing purposes only. For permits for the section of CSR between Wells 16-39, please go to Four Wheel Drive Australia. People wishing to travel the full length of the CSR and/or across sections are required to have both permits.
Endquote.

Please note the last sentence.

Phil....you do realize I'll be watching your progress with much envy and interest.
The Canning is on my list of places to travel, photograph and assimilate with all the literature I've read in history books.

This post may be off thread but all CSR experts are around, so I'd like to know how CSR travellers manage their food when travelling N to S. WA quarantine regulations prohibit carrying pretty much all fresh food (some exceptions) across the border.
Also,
I have read that a permit is required to travel an alternative CSR route south of Billiluna - can anyone clarify.
Thanks.

I think that it is a bit OT but by now we all know that we need two permits to travel the whole length.

Our biggest problem was with fresh veges. The main one for travelling being potatoes, which we plan to peel, slice and cut into chips or slices and then freeze.

Luckily we carry two fridges (40lt as fridge and 20lt as freezer) and the freezer will suit all other veges requirements. It's only a 21 Lt but that will do two or three of us. The Engel 20lt cost us $250, 2nd hand through ebay and paypal. It has worked a treat for the lat two years.

I hope that helps

Keith,

Most of the travellers would go to Halls Creek first to fuel up and also get fresh supplies.
Billiluna has some supplies but you would have to check when the shop is open.
I have always gone south to north and have had no trouble obtaining supplies before Wiluna.

Wayne is correct.

Just to make it all clear. We will be doing a north to south transit and are all coming from the East coast and Halls Creek is not an option for us.
