The Canning Stock Route is the most remote, most adventurous 4wd trip you can undertake in Australia. 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.
