Am heading from Uluru across to Rudall via Sandy Blight and Gary Junction road within the next 10 days. Am trying to decide if to go down Canning to Talawanna Track or go via Telfer Mine Road. Has anyone just come through that section of the Canning from Georgia Bore or along Tallawanna Track who can report on the road conditions. Thanks

I was there about 4 weeks ago and the section from Kunawaritja to Georgia Bore was pretty good from memory, we stayed overnight at Well 29.

I would suggest getting a drum of fuel from Capricorn Roadhouse dropped at Well 23 if you need it as Kunawaritja is $3.40p/l where Capricorn charges $3.00p/l.

Cheers

Colin,
yes I had heard fuel prices had gone up a bit at Kunawaritji .
We can get diesel at Purrngur for $3.00 litre(spoke to them last week).
used the well 23 drop for petrol on our 2010 Canning trip when I had the 80 series.
regards

The inflammatory bit was when it became evident that there are 2 prices Local & Tourist, guess who pays more.

when I went thru a few years back - you needed prior permission to transit thru the Telfer road - as it's a private road.... but this may have changed.

Gidday

It is a few years since I was there but I doubt conditions have improved ... the CSR south from well 33 is well known for its severe corrugations and the Tallawanna west from Georgia Bore as far as Parnngurr also was a pretty rough track. I don't know about the Telfer Mine Road, but given it services the communities at Punmu and Kunawarritji there is a chance that it gets some maintenance and may be a better proposition, particularly if time is an issue. Maybe a call to the communities would give you some info there.
It is great country, enjoy the trip

Cheers

Rocco

Hi

I was wondering - in regard to the tracks from Kunawarritji via the CSR to Georgia Bore and on via the Talawana Track through Rudall River NP on to Telfor, [and ignoring inponderables such as it may have just being graded-thunderstorms having just washed away the track etc etc etc], do you guys with experience of the area think a good off-road C/T [Cub Supamatic] would be OK on that route??

Many thanks
Geo

btw - I know C/T's are not generally recommended for the CSR but I'm only interested in that particular section from Welll 32/33 south to junction with the Talawana Track at Georgia Bore. Are their any sand dunes to negotiate? If there are, are they small enough not to be a problem for a 4 cyl diesel pulling the Cub? I'm only after general opinions from those who know that section.

Many thanks

Geo
