    Explorers Way
    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/ Courtesy of Tourism Sourth Australia and Tourism Northern Territory

    Stuart Highway
    The Stuart Highway is one of Australia's major roadways. In the past it was often known simply as The Track. The highway is named after the explorer John McDouall Stuart one of the 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 Stuart Highway covers approximately 2,800km (1700 miles), connecting Adelaide in South Australia to Darwin in the Northern Territory, via Alice Springs. Its proper routing is from Port Augusta to Darwin. http://www.darwintoalicesprings.com/
