Information

Whau Whau Well is situated on the Gary Highway some 56 km north of the Talawana Track intersection and 240 kilometres north of Everard Junction (Intersection of the Gary and Gunbarrel Highways). It is 83 kilometres south of Gary Junction (Gary Junction Road intersection). Whau Whau also sits at the intersection of the access track to Veevers meteorite carter which is 16 kilometres to the north east.

The well was spudded on the 29th April 1970 and capped once the drill team had finished. One sleeved bore remains with its capped poly-pipe bore casing visible. There is a second hole nearby that is flush with the ground and covered by a piece of steel plate. There is a hand stamped plaque mounted on a picket nearby that lists a bit of detail and lists the names of the drill team involved. The water is not that far below the surface so it could provide water if you were carrying a bore dropper and plenty of rope. There is no hand-pump.
There are some great camps sites amongst the eucalypts a few hundred metres east of Whau Whau, just head a hundred metres towards Veevers and then veer right into the scrub. The camp areas are self evident.
