  1. The Tank – Geoff Huncken Tank – has the rudimentary water catching roof, provided by us and recently replaced.

  2. Am looking to be camping at Mt Arden South Campsite toward the end of September and wondering if anyone knows whether the rainwater tank has sufficient water in it?

    Thanks

  3. Hi Peter,

    We were there in June and the tank had plenty of water then. It has rained considerably since then so I expect it should be close to full. The same applies to the Eyre Depot Tank, to the south, and I will be looking at the Buckaringa Tank, to the north, on Friday!!

  4. Went past this tank recently and there was plenty of water. It has been a wet start to the year and the whole area is very green with various waterholes along the creek bed.

  5. If you are a large group head north to the 4wd campsite (property also has 4wd tourism). Tank had plenty of water. Camped here on the 16/5/15. Wish I’d had organised a full day to walk Eyre Depot Tank to Mt Arden South Campsite as I really rushed through the creek/ gorge to make it before dark, I walked Dutchman Hut to Mt Arden Sth campsite.

  6. I walked to here on 6/9/15. A fabulous, exhilarating walk up the creek from Bucksronga gorge and along the ridge to mt Arden. Light fading as I approached the camp. The 4WD site looks very sad and needs a spruce up. Plenty of water at hikers camp. Difficult to find even a reasonably level spot. (I am not complaining, just commenting)
    Was sunny, but quite windy. Trees have grown a lot. Everything very green
