A detailed itinerary will be provided upon 4WD Tour booking and payment of the tour deposit.

NOTES: This Extended Tour will be subject to the WA Border being open and/or being able to get CSR Permits (as they weren't issued last year).

Canning Stock Route - Well

Days 1 - 22

We leave Wiluna as we begin our iconic journey along the Canning Stock Route. We head out to Wells 1, 2 & 3 and Well 3A and then on to Windich Springs through Granite Peak Station to Well No. 5 and make our way northwards. For the next 22 days we traverse the CSR visiting the Wells, numerous Springs, Pools & scenic hills, salt lakes and cross many sand dunes as we cover 1800km of one of the remotest tracks on earth, and arguably Australia's hardest 4WD Track! Some of the Wells have been restored and getting drinking water from some of them is possible but we can't rely on it, so you need to carry plenty of water. We will make some small detours to visit special spots along the route and we have a rest day Durba Springs and take a chance to have a swim if it's not too cold.

Day 23 - 25

We complete the CSR at Bililuna and hit the iconic Tanami Track as we head south east for Alice Springs to complete our epic journey and have our 'End of Tour dinner' and a chance to relive the tour highlights!!
