The Tanami Track is a remote and challenging route that provides the quickest access from the southern states, via Alice Springs, to the Kimberley. This WestPrint Heritage Map details the ever-changing arid scenery of one of the least populated regions in Australia and provides an awe-inspiring introduction to the immensity of our deserts.
The track’s early history is steeped in gold rushes and the need for stock routes, which required huge amounts of human effort to cross the Tanami. The condition of the present route is being improved, but the area is still remote and can be dangerous.
