Hi All,

There is a track shown on my 'Roads and Tracks' map book of WA which runs from the GNH near Mary Pool, north west through the old Louisa Downs station to Palm spring Creek then west towards Fitzroy Crossing via 'The Black Rocks' and Minnie Pool.

This track is an approximation of what was the main road (track) from FC to Halls Creek in the early 20th century.

I was wondering if anyone has driven it before and what its like, if it even still exists. A google search turned up nothing but i may not have the right track name to search.

Cheers
Warren

Hi

No first hand experience but a track following the route you mention is shown on 250K,100K, 50K topo maps and also visible (at least in part) on Google Earth (dont use Google Maps). So my money is on "yes" it does exist. May pay to contact pastoral lease holders before attempting to find you way around though (e.g. Fossil Downs et al.).

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
