Just to let you know - camped at Red Range on Saturday night (18th August) and there was water available. We had been previously advised that the inlet on the tank was broken but this had been fixed. Good basic camp.

Steve,
You were lucky as we had a maintenance group there about 3 weeks ago and fixed the problem.

Some recent rain may have helped.

How much water was in the tank?

Hi Julian,

That was great timing for us. Hard to say exactly how much water is in the tank but no more than a quarter full. Hopefully they get some more rain up there shortly.

Thanks again
Steve

Steve,

That's great, we were concerned it would be empty.

Camped here on April 18th with Rover Scouts. Our second night out while hiking from where the trail crosses the Hawker-Parachilna Road to the Parachilna Gorge trailhead (7 days/125ish km.)



The water tank was full (thanks to the 50mm of rain Hawker had in November-December last year) however the toilet appeared to also be full - we chose to dig catholes instead.

We arrived at 6:10 after walking from Mayo Hut. Dinner was noodles with sweet potato soup and cheesecake for dessert (supposed to serve 12? it served 2 of us for dessert and breakfast :lol:)

Sat around the fire having a chat until 11pm. We rose the next morning at 7:45 and departed by 9:45 for Bridle Gap.

We were quite surprised to come across a table in the creek at 54J E 262350 S 6489771 ???? (google map)We hadn't seen a road for some distance and there was no signs of the table being used for some time. We were very puzzled/amused.

Later finding a gas BBQ, a very stylish seat in the riverbank and also a longdrop loo, we presume the locations are (or were) part of some kind of tourist facilities on Arkaba Station.



If anyone else could shed some light on them, it would be appreciated.
