See our rolling road map all on one page
The journey through the heart of Australia - from Adelaide to
Darwin on the Stuart Highway - is one of the nation’s greatest
driving adventures. The Stuart Highway is, in every sense, Explorer’s
Way. It follows the route of intrepid explorer John McDouall
Stuart, who in 1862 became the first person to traverse the
continent from south to north. These days the trip is infinitely
easier, with a high-quality sealed highway following Stuart’s
3,245-kilometre journey through South Australia and the Northern
Territory. You’ll accomplish the route in seven days of relentless
driving, but two weeks are recommended for a real insight into
this breathtaking wilderness http://www.darwintoalicesprings.com/

the past it was often known simply as The Track. The highway

first European to cross Australia from South to North, and this
highway more or less follows his original route. The highway
was finally only fully sealed in the middle 1980s as part of
the Australia's bicentenary roadworks programme. The entire
highway is part of the current Australian National Highway system.
It forms part of Highway 1 from Darwin to Daly Waters in Northern
Territory and is assigned National Route 87 for the remaining
1243 miles (2,000km) south to Port Augusta in South Australia
(Redesignated as National Route A87 in South Australia). The

via Alice Springs. Its proper routing is from Port Augusta to
