The Canning Stock Route.

The Canning Stock Route is one of the most remote and isolated four wheel drive tracks in the world.

It was created by Albert Canning for Kimberley cattlemen to take their stock to the southern markets. Canning conducted a full survey from 1906 to 1907. He returned with a team in 1908 to sink the 51 wells along the 1850 kilometres between Halls Creek and Wiluna.

A reconstruction team, lead by William Snell refurbished all the wells in 1929.

The first complete traverse of the Canning Stock Route by motor vehicle was achieved in the 1970s.

With the establishment of the fuel dump in the 1980s, travellers intrigued by the heritage and the overland adventure began to travel the Canning Stock Route in greater numbers.

Georgia Bore was drilled by CRA to supply water for their survey camp and was later fitted with a hand pump for the use of travellers. It is between well 22 and 23 and part of the Talawana track, one of the three exits track off the Canning Stock Route, to Newman 450km to the west.
