Greg & Josie Walker's CSR (spiral bound) map has Bungabinni at 22°09'24.8"S, 125°11'47.6"E (or -22.156889, 125.196556).

Has anyone verified this exact location? A good GPS should give a fix to within 3m - that's the sort of accuracy I'm after ;-).

Hi

Sorry cant help with exact coordinates but doubt you will have trouble finding it given how well traveled the area is. There is a carpark/camp area right next to it an no doubt a well traveled path to the well.

Greg & Josie Walker's coords appear to plot in one of the nearby carparks/camp areas. Hemas coords (from Great Desert Tracks NW Map) also appears to plot in another carpark/camp site ~90m north.

The well itself (guessing its the black dot) is in the clay pan visible in this Microsoft Virtual Earth screen shot...at 726473 mE, 7548250 mN MGA Zone 51 (Datum GDA94) +/- a few metres.



Cheers
Greg
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

Well, you learn something new every day - much appreciated Greg!

The info matches what everyone has been telling me back at the Canning Stock Route facebook page run by Phil Bianchi. Thanks again for the link and image.

Here's another photo that my friend Thomas Kreis took in August 2015 (he also cycled the CSR that year) - his phone had the GPS location but a bit of moisture got into it some time between there and Billiluna and he lost the track.

Hi

Have just been to the CSR facebook page and my "guess" at where the well is may be slightly wrong.

It would appear to be in the same clay pan but someone has posted the coordinates as 726503 mE and 7548244 mN....about 30m east of where I thought it looked to be. Either way should be easy to find.

Cheers
