Hi

Does anyone know if there is a station track (or connecting tracks) running east from around the Mungeranne Pub across to the Strzelecki Track?

Regards

Kim

Yes there is, but permission has been denied for the past 5 years since one of the stations was bought out my a multinational company.

Cheers

Kim,

My recollection is from about 4-5 years ago - access here came up at our club. The station 40k south of Mungarannie changed hands, and I apologise that I can't remember the name of the new owner. They denied all access to Lake Hope when it was full of water. Theres a tree blazed by MacKinley on the edge of the lake too. I travelled through there on a fundraising 4wd trip in 1999.

And as mentioned you may have an issue getting access on the Moomba roads. These roads are impeccibly maintained, and close instantly when it rains to prevent damage.

Most stations are leasehold. Only a few are freehold. If it's leasehold they shouldn't be able to stop you crossing. This is true in WA - not sure about wherever you are.

Gooday Kimprado
From behind the Mungeranie Homestead you can take a station track out to Waukatanna Waterhole on the Cooper (lots & lots of dune crossings). From here you can travel upstream to Narrawalpinna W/H where you leave the track and head west to Kanowna Station ruins(GPS recommended). From the ruins there is an ill defined track that travels out through the Gidgealpa Gas Fields to Innaminka.
Mungeranie was purchased by Graham Betts of Epsilon Station in QLD and his station manager at Mungeranie is Rod Fullarton. Should be no promlems there but unless you have a contact in Moomba or Santos access accross the gas fields may present a problem.

Gooday Kimprado,
I did that particular trip 4 years ago when Mary Oldfield held the Pastoral Lease over Mungeranie. Lots of water in the Cooper. Great trip.

Steve and Phil,

Can you both contact me on kimmc@satlink.com.au to discuss this please. I note you did it for charity and belong to a club.

I need to catch up with Eric Oldfield when we’re up there (on an unrelated matter) and he may be able to help with access.

Regards

Kim
