Hi all,

Just gathering as much info as I can on the Canning Stock Route for a planned trip later this year. Looking for feedback from others that have completed this trek.

I have searched previous posts and still have a few questions.

All info indicates that the best time to travel the CSR is June to September, however my holiday schedule means I will begin the CSR from Wiluna early October - Any feedback regarding travelling this time of year would be appreciated.

Other than the usual spares/comms equipment/additional fuel & water - Do I need anything extra to access water from the wells ? (Rope etc)

I'll be travelling across in a 2003 3.0TD Patrol with 4X20Litres of Diesel - is that overkill ?

Any other tips ?

Thanks in advance
Phil P

Hi Phil,

Am also planning Canning trip in Sep / Oct this year - 2004 GU III 3.0TD Patrol. For some good info try getting hold of "Canning Stock Route" A Traveller's Guide by Ronele and Eric Gard (3rd Edition). It is a good read with lots of info and advice - from memory they have done the trip 18 times.
October will be a bit on the warm side. We are going to try for September but if that will not work then it will be October.

May see you out there.

Cheers

Graham

Phil,

I will be doing the CSR in June, but will not be back until the middle of July. I will be able to give you any info that you will need plus any tips that I will come across.
