Kodjerning Well is near a low lying rock by the same name within a few metres of the road and is fenced and signposted. The fencing was refurbished in 2021. It is located just off the Moorine Rock Road.

Hunt’s party constructed this well in 1865. He recorded:

21 April 1865. Friday. … start for Kookoordine by way of Kodgering …. At this place I entend to make another well, as there is every indication of permanent water and stone, to stone it up with.

Hunt re-visited Kodjerning on 21 July 1866:

… at 7am started for Kookoordine – in route passing Kodjerning Govt. well distant from last halt abt. 7 miles by track the well I found containing 2 ft 9 ins of water – about the same as when dug – in March 1865.

From Hunt’s ‘List of Reserves and Stopping Places:
Situated about (4) chains from the northern edge of flat granite rock of same name. Recommended that (10) acres be reserved, the well to form the center. Marked tree about (10) chains on the track to Koorkoordine – on the left of track.
