The Explorers' Wells and Tracks Project

The Explorers’ Wells and Tracks’ Project aims to restore and protect as many as possible of the wells and tracks built by our early explorers, concentrating on those of C.C. Hunt.

The precursor to the Explorers’ Wells and Tracks’ Project was the establishment of the York to Goldfields Heritage Trail in 1988, driven by Merredin farmer Kevin Cahill, and Kim Epton. Details of this trail are in the 1988 publication Heritage Trails in Western Australia by Avril S. O’Brien.
