A trip down the Canning is like nothing you could ever imagine. One solitary set of wheel tracks setting out across the Great Sandy Desert eventually connecting with Wiluna, 2000 km to the south making it the longest and most remote stock route in the world.

 

It is a place of great natural beauty, with land systems ranging from spinifex plains to wetlands, dune systems, desert oak forests, spectacular ranges and escarpments and salt lakes. It is also the longest heritage trail in Australia, containing Aboriginal rock art galleries, lonely graves of stockmen and explorers, and the series of wells that punctuate the route. Some of these have been restored, and good water can be obtained. Others lie in ruins.

 

This is a fully catered expedition. You can choose to travel in our vehicles or tagalong on your own. The Canning today is one of the worlds greatest 4X4 adventures that combines a rich cultural heritage, extraordinary natural history, and an exciting remote area tour. Diamantina has been operating down the Canning Stock Route since 1992.

 

Travel with the acknowledged and recognised experts! You will be travelling in a small convoy of modern desert equipped expedition four-wheel drives over the Great Sandy Desert. We never use large vehicles like unimogs or 4X4 coaches. Your drivers and guides are all experts in their field.
