Hi All
We have been travelling on the Puntawarra Track in 2003 from Jigalong and in 2005 more directly from Cundlebar to Durba Hills. We had a look at Satellite BING Maps and found that both tracks from Jigalong to Puntawarri are still well visible. However, the track from Puntawarri to Durba Hills is faint and in many locations difficult to trace. Has anybody been out there recently and could comment on the tracks.
Thank you for your help

Hi Andreas.
I did a trip in 2007 from Jigalong to Durba Springs via the Puntawarri track and the CSR if that is on any use. I have the OziExplorer track plot file available.

Hi Andy,
We did the Puntawarri track in 2011 and it was well-defined and easy to follow. I believe the track is well-used by the locals - we met a group from Jigalong on our trip.
It is a fantastic track and well worth travelling. Have traveled it twice - our last trip was rushed however as we were heading to Newman for repairs (broken chassis on BT50).
Cheers, Geoff

Hi Geoff and David

Thanks for your answers. I will enquire with the locals at Jigalong and ask for a permit.

Cheers Andreas
