The purpose of this trip is to travel down the legendary Canning Stock Route.
However first I need to fly to Broome where I will join the 16 day Outback Spirit tour which ends in Newman. We then fly to Perth. Being a train buff I will return to Sydney by the Indian Pacific.
The Canning Stock Route is a track that runs from Halls Creek in the Kimberley region of Western Australia to Wiluna in the mid-west region. With a total distance of around 1,850 km (1,150 mi) it is the longest historic stock route in the world.
Alfred Wernam Canning and his 484-strong entourage of men, horses, camels and (mostly) goats sank the original 52 wells every 15 miles (a day’s march for cattle) over a century ago.
