The Gunbarrel Highway is one of those highways not for the faint-hearted. It's a highway I had planned to travel in a 2WD vehicle and eventually thought better of it. It's the sort of 'highway' you would expect to find in outback Australia. The road was built by Len Beadell and his small team of trail blazers.
The land through which the highway travels can be best described as desert - Australian desert. It is a land of red soils, mulga and spinifex.
The only part of the highway that can remotely lend itself to the name highway would be the section from Wiluna in Western Australia through to Carnegie Station (344km in length). The rest is really 4WD country and for the brave.
