Canning Stock Route - Distance - Halls Creek - Kunawarritji - Carnegie

HI guys, have spent a fair bit of time reading through the CSR Threads and have noticed a lot of variance in the distances recorded. I do understand their are a lot of by pass tracks on the CSR and how this can alter the total. If one was to stay on the track its self what is the distance from "Halls Creek to Kunawarritji" & Kunawarritji to Wiluna / Carnegie. Cheers

Patrol Dude,

The distance can vary, the reason being some want to visit every well possible and others just drive the CSR.
Have a look at thread 107704.

Hi Dude,

These are the figures we worked on last year and are pretty close.
Wiluna to Capricorn fuel dump 671km
Capricorn to Kunawarritji 271km
Kunawarritji to Bililuna 642km
Bililuna to halls creek 170km

Total 1754km

There are not many bypass tracks on the Canning so distances won't vary too much.
Rather a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy!

I added the distances in the Hema maps.

I should explain. The figure of 101 kms next to Well 51 is the distance from Billiluna. Same thing with the Separation Well turn off. The 162 kms is the distance from Kunawaratjii

We aren't going to Halls Creek so I left it out. I get 823 Kms for Halls Creek to Kuna

Hadn't planned on as yet. We still have two planning meetings left and we shall see.

I have added it to the meetings agenda list.

Looks like nice country.

Wouldn't mind some background from Mick O. May drop him an email next week.

Thanks

Mr. Dude,
So glad you asked this question. I'm in the planning stages too so it's helpful info for me too.
I plan to do it without the need for the fuel dump so accurate figures are very much needed.
Thanks Phil for the breakdown of distances.

Fab.

Surely you & the OP aren't going to it without a map?
We used the Westprint map & found it be excellent.

G'DayShaker.
As I stated "Useful info".
I thought about taking my Hema GDT 3rd edition and running my Ozi Explorer mapping program with overlayed Satellite imagery but in this particular case, I'm sure there will be a mud map scratched into the earth somewhere along the way.
I might have a look at Westprint too....thanks. I've heard good stuff about it.
I'm sure the track itself is easy enough to follow but it's knowing the good stuff just off the track that makes for an adventure rather than just a drive.

Thanks for your concerns though :)

Fab.

There is heaps of info on the Westprint maps about points if interest along with coordinates. They are only good for one trip though, ours ended up in about 6 pieces!

Hi Fab, yes mate I understand completely. We are looking at travelling down from the north and only want to make one fuel stop at Kunawarritji. We are allowing 25L per hundred Ks, and want to make sure that we have a good safety margin. All advise most welcome. Cheers

HeyDude,
If you haven't already seen this on Youtube...have a look. It's probably one of the best "home movies" I've seen on about the CSR to date.

G'day Dude,
Last year we visited all but 1 well, it was 40? k off the track and 40 back and was listed as collapsed so we skipped it.
We also visited Wolfe Creek so the total travelled from Wiluna to Halls Creek was 2076 k's.
My Patrol 4.2TD is an 05 model and used 224 litres for 1158 k's (19.35/100) to Kunawaritji then 187 litres for 918 k's (20.6/100) to Halls creek. I was heavy but not towing.
Gaynor Schoeman walked directly without the side bars and said it was about 1650 k's Billiluna to Wiluna.
The track is really easy to follow but if real early in the season some parts might be a bit obscure especially around some of the lakes as the track is rock hard.
When I get to do the trip again I am going to stop and set up camp when I see a lovely spot no matter how many or few K's done that day. We camped at 5, then stopped for a break at 6, what a lovely spot. Reckon we should have stopped there too!
If you appreciate the wildflowers you are going to see something special.
Mate you will enjoy it, it is that good.
