Wells 1-5 On the Canning

We will be travelling the Canning through May this year and would like peoples thoughts on whether its worth doing a trip out and back from Wiluna to well 5 ? We will be towing so that leg is off limits to us but after travelling over from Queensland we don't want to miss anything!!

Cheers Jim

I would say that if you are going that far to do the Canning Stock Route the trip from Wiluna to Well 5 and back would be worth while.

Leave the camper at Wiluna, check out Well 1 and North Pool on the way out to the start of the CSR.
You could camp at Well 3 and then do a run up to Well 5. If you have time turn around and camp back at Well 3 if not camp at Well 5. There is no camping after Well 3 until Well 5.

On the return trip it will be quicker because you would have seen everything on the way in.

Have a safe trip.

If nothing else it will be a frustrating drive on the way back when you see how easy it would have been to tow a trailer up to well 5 :-) The restrictions are certainly out of step for many who have set them up properly for full offroad use.
You'll find the lower section is different to that further to the north but is basically just marginal station country. It's all worth seeing if you have the time.

Thanks Guys, We don't have camping gear other than the trailer so might do a run at it from each end - Wiluna and Well 5 just to see.
