Canning Stock Route
About the Track
Track Description

Travellers should be extremely well prepared before undertaking this trek the Canning Stock Route is one of the most remote and isolated four wheel drive tracks in the world. Travellers should note that even with a permit, access is restricted to several sites, some located within the Canning Stock Route reserve. Permission is required to pass through the lands of the Gregory Lakes Community and Balgo Hills Community. Permits are available through the Aboriginal Affairs Planning Authority, 17 Emerald Terrace, West Perth 6005. Telephone 08 9322 7044. and the Australian National Four Wheel Drive Council (ANFWDC) through their website distance from Wiluna to Halls Creek is 2013 kilometres, but you will no doubt exceed that distance, particularly if you wish to visit each well, or perhaps you may need to back track on occasions to ascertain that you are on the correct route.All travellers should be aware of the hazards that could be encountered with lack of fresh water being the most obvious with the risk of dehydration occuring.Extensive outback travel experience is required in conjunction with a very reliable and capable vehicle that has been specifically prepared for remote, long distance desert travel. Spares parts should be taken of all critical components. There are no repair facilities or habitation of any kind between Glenayle and Balgo, therefore you are entirely on your own. The station people do not have the staff or equipment to extricate people from the stock route, who find themselves in trouble.
