Anne Beadell Highway

Adventure Sports in The Goldfields

This remote 1325km track runs from Laverton to Coober Pedy through the Great Victoria Desert. Constructed by explorer and surveyor Len Beadell, it's for experienced, completely self-sufficient 4WD drivers only. There are no settlements en route and only one place to get petrol: the remote Ilkurlka roadhouse, 755km from Laverton. Four permits required; allow four to six weeks for approval.
