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.
