Information

Tchukardine pool is a waterhole located 7.8 km west of Hanging Rock in the Rudall River National Park. The waterhole falls only a couple of kilometres outside the parks western boundary. The track heading south from Hanging Rock is long unused and as such is over grown and hardly discernable. This waterhole is a long sandy depression in a short, un-named creek. It is a watering spot for both wildlife and feral cattle, camels & donkeys (who will brey in indignation all night). It is the closest water to Hanging Rock without back tracking to Curran Curran waterhole. Within two kilometres of the waterhole is Meeting Gorge which is passed to get to the waterhole. There is a good camping spot by the waterhole and a cairn under one of the spindly acacia trees holds a jar with visitors details (only one so far...us!). Some track notes. Reset odometre to zero at Hanging Rock. Follow track south towards range in distance.

As at July, 2009, Tchukardine Pool is bone dry. The last water seen to the west was at Christies Crossing and to the east, Desert Queen Baths. The park is extremely dry at the present time. The cairn has been rebuilt at the base of the acacia and the jar placed inside it.
