Hi,
Am doing a trip on Wapet Rd/Kidson Track in June.

Can any of you travellers advise me if I can get fuel, diesel, at Punmu and any opening times.

Thanks
Kev

I got diesel there in 2007 at $2.00 a litre . I do not remember seeing a bowser for petrol , but I maybe wrong about that .

Why don't you ring them or email them . The couple who seemed to be in charge of keeping the place going , were very friendly when I turned up . I had to find some sort of admin centre and from there I followed the guy up to a shed where the pump was .

I would imagine that open times would be business hours , because it is operated by the couple at the admin office .

Have a nice trip .

Willie .

Hi Kev
Isn't Punmu a bit out of your way from the Kidson Track, or is this a backup?
Cheers, John

Last time I was at Punmu(2006) there wasn't a human being in sight. They had all gone to a funeral at Jigalong...plenty of sorry business.

20 or so stray dogs saw us off the premises...lol

Diesel is available.


Cheers

Kev do you mean you are using the Telfer Rd as part of your trip? to or from the WAPET rd, if so call the Kunawarritji community (08) 91769040, they had some up to date advice on the road conditions for the WAPET when we were they in July '07, for fuel at Punmu call them on (08)91769006.
They were nice people to talk to & had good advice for the Telfer rd.
Good luck.

Rod,
We're not really sure which road yet most probably the Wapet all the way but the Telfer Mine Road looks interesting.

Thanks for the info it will be very helpful
