Does anyone know if the bore / windmill (I believe it is known as Midway Well) on the Talawana Track half-way between the Canning Stock Route and Windy Corner is operational (that is, can I get drinkable water from it)?

Iwas sure that this came up in a previous post that I can't find quickly. AFIK the answer was no, the well is in bad shape.

If you mean the original Midway Well, then no it is silted over and not servicable. If you mean the windmill and tank on the track a little further to the east, then yes, good water can be had from here in a large tank.(10,000 gals).Water is potable.

The turn-off to Midway Well (approx 85kms east of CSR) is virtually next to the track to the windmill and tank, a couple of hundred metres at most from memory, follow that in for about 5-6 kms and you will see the tank and windmill and the remains of somebodys attempt at a vegetable patch in the desert!

I was there 3 weeks ago, the tank is dry. The windmill is turning but no water being pumped.
Nearest potable water would be Georgia Spring.
