This map book is out of print and I am chasing something which shows all the pastoral stations and their boundaries in the Murchison, Pilbara areas of WA. Does anyone know of another map book which shows this details, or would anyone have a copy (10th Edition) they could lend/sell/ etc. I need the names and the boundaries of stations along the Rabbit Proof Fence. Does anyone know a good map showing details of the RPF??

Thanks for the suggestion Ted. They are all saying it is unavailable. However, I think I am onto one now thanks to my good mate Duncan W (WA).

I am not 100% sure Ben but I reckon the WA DMP (Department , Minerals, & Petroleum) have that information re. station contacts. Worth a try.

Scrubby.
I don`t know where i`m going but i`m enjoying the journey.

Hi Ben

An often overlooked source of information in today's age of Internet - the State Library of WA will have a copy in their archival collection.

You can access these, read them, take notes (pencil and paper only) and they will allow you to take digital photos if you take a USB to store the images.

Unfortunately, you won't be able to borrow it.

Cheers

Majority of pastoral lease are now under DPAW control, a few still do exist though. They would have a list of what they now control

Most roads out that way will have signs on them declaring what station your entering and leaving.

Should also be aware its a offence to traverse alongside state agricultural protection barrier fence. with heft fines imposed

I'm unable to paste in pictures for some reason

Not a correct statement

"Majority of pastoral lease are now under DPAW control, a few still do exist though"

Yes DPAW have purchased a significant number over the years but they would still be in the minority as far as Pastoral Stations ownership goes.

With some exceptions DPAW have targeted properties in areas of ecological importance and in areas where it was becoming uneconomic owing to sheep/cattle prices prevailing at the time and also smaller in area...More often that not (but with exceptions) they are in the more arid zones.

As for signs entering and leaving.......well sometimes yes and sometimes no.

Travel along the State Barrier Fence is not an issue...all you require is a valid reason and obtain a permit.
