Godfrey’s Tank & Breaden Pool
Two members of David Carnegie’s exploration party of 1896 gave names to our destinations today; Godfrey’s Tank and Breaden Pool. As the party desperately searched the landscape for water, Godfrey Massie found a huge natural stone catchment that was full, hence the name ‘Godrey’s Tank’. Another party member, Joe Breaden, also found water in a lower area (named Breaden Pool).
Today we’ll take the time to explore the wonderful natural features of these waterholes before continuing south down the Canning. Enjoy quick stop offs at Wells 48 and 47 before tackling the first of the massive sand dunes along the stock route, and it won’t be the last! Late in the afternoon we’ll set up camp at Well 46.
