Australia's Golden Outback Holiday Planner 2022/23

ANNE BEADELL highway 5-7 days | Unsealed roads

A classic outback road trip passing through extremely remote desert areas, the Anne Beadell Highway stretches 1,350km from Laverton in the Goldfields region through to Coober Pedy in South Australia. The track was created by surveyor Len Beadell who named it after his wife to honor her as he was frequently absent. This is an extreme trail for the experienced and well prepared. 4WD enthusiasts will appreciate the vastness of the landscape, as well as the dense scrub and challenges of the sandy track. Watch as the terrain slowly changes from clay pans and salt lakes to red sand dunes, and be sure to stop by and experience the old Yeo Homestead, Yamarna Station and Djinkagara along the way. There are lots of unexpected sights on the trail, including the wreck of an old

aircraft on the WA side of the track, and Emu Field, the former British atomic test site. Travelling with another vehicle is recommended and permits are essential.
