  1. Walked past on 24/04/24. Lunch stop for us. Tank empty. Missing tap. Appears to be a newish toilet plus tank too.

  2. FoHT End to End -2 walk group visited this site on 13/5/21. Tank water level 100%.

  3. 17.4.21 Rangers say this is an unreliable water source as easy day walker access from Wilpena Pound and is on the Mawson Bike Trail. We found water but only about 200mm above tap.
    Although a new campsite with a great toilet it has NO
    seating, tables or platforms. Redback spiders under the toilet as well.
    Not good for a new campsite!
    Sign also said fees apply for camping in designated sites.

    • Came through on the 3rd of October 2022 and tank was empty. Thankfully there was flowing water in the creek. Heavy rain on the 4th of October may have refilled it.
