Hello Dejan

I have travelled on the Canning twice in the last 2 years. Not sure whether you 
only want to know what birds have been seen or what the CSR is like to travel 

If you are looking for logistic info then I strongly recommend you read 
(libraries should have it) Canning Stock Route A Travellers Guide Ronele and 
Eric Gard. Also if you want detailed day by day data some travellers have put 
this type of info on the web. Look in Follow the links to  
Trek Notes/WDeserts/Canning Stock Route

If  you are interested only in the Princess Parrot and don't have any 
particular interest in driving the CSR for the sake of the adventure then I 
think I would try Jupiter Well first where I saw flocks of birds last year. 
Presumably you would be travelling from Perth. Forty km south of Sanfire 
Roadhouse is an unmarked track heading east. It is actually the WAPET Track but 
has no sign saying so. The first 50 odd kms are roughish but the track got 
better and better and we made fast progress. You cross CSR at Well 33 where you 
can refuel and then it is about 200km farther east on a road that was excellent 
when we drove it last year. Campers we met at Jupiter Well said they had seen 
people towing caravans on the section west of Alice Springs.

If you want more detailed info let me know.
