Burracoppin Well Refurbishment

Burracoppin Well is not where the signage indicates.

The second Explorers Wells Project ‘refurb’ was scheduled for the weekend of 16-18 September 2016. We left El Caballo, 50 kilometres east of Perth, at 4.30 p.m. with 12 people in eight vehicles.

Burracoppin Well was hard to find, hidden behind bushes, long grass and fallen trees.

The plan of attack was simple – clear everything for five metres around the well.

Everyone pitched in with enthusiasm and the task was finished well within the time allocated.

In June 2021 we revisited Burracoppin Well and shifted the ‘Hunt’s Well Burracoppin’ sign from the carpark of the motocross track to where the well actually is.
