We will be walking from Quorn to the Parachilna Trailhead from 27 September to 10 October. Is there a possibility of standing water being in any of the creeks at this time?
Thanks
Shirl

Probably not. Reports from July said there was no standing water north of Hawker. All the tanks are full, refer to this post: http://www.heysentrail.asn.au/forums/viewtopic.php?t=673&accom_id=673

There is a group heading up this weekend for a week's walking. One will report back to you about current conditions.

A report from a group walking last week:

walked down as far as Mayo Gorge just north of the Mayo Hut.
Apart from water tanks at the shelters and huts(most were 66-75% full) there was water available at these points:
Pigeon Bore via the hand-operated pump (Map 6.7 Grid Ref. 675 413)
Water in small rockpools in Slaty Creek (Map 5.4 Grid Ref. 606 874 to 609 877) NOTE: These may have dried up in a few weeks time.
Mayo Gorge (Map 5.3 Grid Ref. 543 855)
Cheers,
Dean

Not sure if that was clear. The group walked the Parahilna Gorge to Mt Little/Mayo Gorge section (near Mayo Hut, Hawker)

Shirl - let us know how your walk goes, sounds like a great plan!
