When traveling from Kathryn to the Western Australian border The Victoria Highway is the first choice; being tar sealed all the way plus being a continuation of Highway One as the catalyst for that decision.

The distance to the border some 500 plus kilometres determine for most a stopover.

This is a relaxing and very interesting drive.  Subtle but ever changing scenery also makes for a great journey.

The highway is named after the river, and Victoria River is one of the stop offs, but could be a stopover.

Timber Creek is a great spot and between museums, crocodiles and bohab trees, there is plenty to keep your interest.

Explorers, highway builders and the scenery makes for a great, but expect a lonely drive. You are on your own for long periods.

Here is a collection of highway photos.
