Mr. Alfred Canning first surveyed the Stock Route in 1905. Construction of the wells along the route taken, began in 1908. Steeped in history this is the longest Stock Route in the World at 1850 k’s. It’s also one of the best Australian desert trips available; a must do Adventure. We follow Alfred Canning’s wells from the North Pool just out of Wiluna through to well fifty one. 

You will see some spectacular sights along the way, as we meander from south to north. Be prepared for a few thousand corrugations on this trip, I prefer to take it easy and enjoy the scenery rather than belting along. Expect early rises and long days in your vehicle every day on this tour, it’s a long way over some harsh relentless terrain.  

We will stop and rest up at the beautiful Derba Springs camp ground so you can explore this wonderful desert oasis and have a break out of the vehicle for a day. 

Kunawaritji Community: Well 33.                                                                                  

 A chance to top up on fuel and limited supplies. This is the crossroad intersection of the Canning and Gary Highway. Head west to Marble Bar, east to Alice Springs. 

Sunset over Lake Disappointment is an experience that one will never forget, we will also visit Godfrey Tank and Breadon Pool, and for our very last night we will stop on a water hole in the middle of the desert just shy of Bililuna. 

Whilst this may be the closing of the Canning adventure we will still visit Wolf Creek crater before re stocking with groceries and fuel etc. in Halls Creek. Then the run down the Tanami Desert road to Alice Springs where the trip will conclude. Showers at the local caravan park then we will enjoy a celebration meal together. unfortunately here, we say our farewells, however, there is much to see in the area stay awhile and look around.

Fuel: Diesel and Petrol, Available at Kalgoorlie, Wiluna, Kunawarritja Community, Billiluna, Halls Creek, also available on the run down the Tanami.
