Access to fresh drinking water

Is fresh drinking water routinely available everywhere on the Gibb River Road and the Bungle Bungles? We have an offroad camper trailer with 180 litres of water storage but would like to know if we have to plan ahead to refill.

Gibb River Road yes, Bungles no
by: Birgit

Hi Catriona,

As mentioned on the Bungles camping page (scroll down to the paragraph starting with "The facilities at both campgrounds..."), it is not recommended to drink the bore water in the Bungles unless you boil it. I'd make sure you have enough left before you drive in there.

Along the Gibb River Road water is not a problem. I mention drinking water under the heading Fuel/Supplies on this GRR page.

Details can be found at the end of the Gibb River Road section of my guide book and the HEMA map I recommend also shows drinking water availability.
