Welcome to WA Danny, you'll get used to us the further west you go :-)

Did you check at the switchboard, may have just been a breaker?

No day light saving, so power is 2 1/2 hrs behind. Just got to wait. WA is an abbreviation for wait awhile

It was the same several years ago, we had to move sites to get power. Things sure move slowly out there.

We had the same problem when returning through Eucla about 6 months ago.

Some worked, many did not. Fortunately we do a max of 4 or 5 hours travel a day so got in around mid day. Many who came later were asking around who had power and who didn't.

Sounds like not much has changed about WA standing for wait awhile. I guess us "locals" get use to it after a while (;=))

Cheers

I spent a night there late Nov. last year. I aware of the problem and found one that worked. Prior to pulling out the next morning I found that I had lost power, queried with them, they said that it never had happened before. Go figure. Regards G.T.
