Prepare! By any standard, this is a long and tough haul through very remote territory. Be sure to read the outback section of Driving in Australia. The track varies from stony to sandy with corrugations, ruts, washaways and sometimes mud. Be totally self-sufficient with water, food and fuel (the longest distance between fuel outlets is 489 km., between Carnegie Station and Warburton.)    Sections of the trip pass through Aboriginal Land. You need two separate permits
