The Canning Stock Route is the remotest, most adventurous 4wd trip you can undertake in Australia. The Gun Barrell Highway is the stuff of legend. Our tour begins near Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park at Curtin Springs and finishes in Alice Springs. If you wish to spend time at Uluru Kata Tjuta, please do this before departure as we are not permitted to conduct tours of this park. More information will be provided in the booking pack.
The Canning stretches from Wiluna to Halls Creek in Western Australia crossing the Great Sandy Desert, the Little Sandy Desert and parts of the Gibson Desert. It comprises almost 1900 kilometres and over 1000 sand dunes of the harshest yet most beautiful country in Australia'a incredible outback.
In 1906 a series of wells were dug, some in the location of existing aboriginal "wells" to allow for droving of cattle. The area has an incredible beauty and the scenery is ever changing.
The history of the stock route and the aboriginal history comes alive on this tour.

Traveling the Canning Stock Route or any of Australia's desert country via motor vehicle is not for the inexperienced, that is why a tag-along tour is one of the best ways to experience the desert. Desert knowledge is essential and you don't get it overnight.
We arrange and provide all travel permits for you. These are included in the price.
