The Canning Stock Route #7
From Durba Springs we continue southwards, along the lonely track. The track becomes quite rough in places and the going slows for most of the day. Wild flowers are abundant along the route. we make camp on a lookout point, overlooking the vast plains that surround us. To conclude this episode, Justin and I talk about the tyres we have used and camp just south of White Lake.
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. Once used as a route for cattle droves following a series of wells, it is now mainly used by adventure seekers looking for a challenge and solitude in the Australian outback. The last cattle drove the route in the 1930's.
