    • Peter,
      Thank you, the Friends are aware, and it is planned to be replaced in a month or two.
      BTW what were you doing there in December?
      That’s private land and the Trail is closed in the Fire Ban Season.
      We have a very tenuous relationship with the landowner and expect walkers to stick to the rules, to avoid problems.

  1. FOHT Trail Development team visited the site on 16/4/2022. Water level in the tank was approx 85%.

  2. FoHT Trail Development team checked tank on 14/4/2022 – level approx 80% full

  3. FoHT Trail Development team inspected the tank in August. Water level at 75%.

  4. There on Friday 23.4.22, good water pressure and lovely water but only about 25% in shelter tank, no tank on toilet. Some slow, very rocky, hilly fence walking as you head south from here. Test your feet!

  5. Used this site for a lunch break for I was walking onto Hawker from Calabrinda Creek camp site on 3rd July. Plenty of water in tank which helped to refill my supply. Another toilet – bonus. Plenty of sites to set up tent and firewood aplenty.

  6. Had lunch here 4/9/15 on way to Calabrinda from Hawker. I do not think many camp here. ENORMOUS spider in loo. Water tank full. This is a tank where one must turn the tap clockwise.

  7. Had lunch here on 20/5/15. Sandy ground was a great change to the rocks. looks like a good spot to camp. Plenty of water in tank.

  8. Hello All,

    Walked through Mt Elm on Sunday 8 June 2014. Plenty of water in the tank!
