Comment: Canning Stock Route

Hi There,
We are planning on doing the CSR from Wiluna to Halls Creek from the 8th Aug. Is anyone else traveling at this time? Would be great to catch up with some fellow travellers :)
Also coming from the South has anyone recently been through Paynes Find - Sandstone - Leinster track? Do you know what the condition of the track is like? Would it be quicker and more economical going up to Meekathara then Wiluna?

The Paynes Find to Sandstone road is a good track. Sandstone to Leinster is a sealed road in v good condition. Alternatively you can drive Sandstone to Wiluna via the Gidgee Gold Mine road, also a good track.

Gidday jezza,

Paynes Find to Sandstone to Wiluna via Yeelirrie (not via Leinster) is a good outback dirt and gravel road. Obviously things could change after rain.

Off the top of my head it is about 80km shorter than going up the highway to Meekatharra but via Meeka you then have only 200 km of dirt to Wiluna.

So six of one, half a dozen of the other. Maybe save an hour or so but a couple of hundred km less dirt

Enjoy your trip

Hi Rach,
