Information

The site of Well 49 (Lambu) is on the right hand side of the track. This well was reconstructed , with new lid, but no whip pole and no windlass on the fixings of the trough. The termites have since done serious damage and the area around the lid, as of 2013 is unsound. in 2010, 2011 and 2014 water quality for drinking very good. Water treatment is always recommended. There are plenty of camping areas beneath ti-trees.
Also a short walk trail behind the well site leads to the grave of Jack Smith. Jack Smith had an unfortunate accident whilst working along the CSR. His horse fell on him, injuring him quite severly. He continued to work, but later he fell from his horse and never fully recovered. He died at Well 49 on the 23rd May 1939.
