Head off on an epic adventure along the Territory's newest four-wheel drive route, the Binns Track. Covering over 2000km, the track cuts through some of the most fascinating scenery and lesser-known sights of the region. Start at the South Australian border and wind your way through remote national parks, remarkable terrain and far-flung outback towns. Named after ranger and bush lover, Bill Binns, the track traverses the gamut of the region's geography.

The desert fringe

Follow the western fringe of the Simpson Desert en route to Alice Springs and be awestruck by towering sand dunes along the way. Journey through the East MacDonnell Ranges and behold ancient rock carvings that record the Arrernte people's history of the land.

Gold and granite

Pass through gold rush towns and fossick for semi-precious stones at Gemtree. Get off-road and pass outback cattle stations and stop off for a dip in a waterhole. Move on to the Davenport Ranges National Park and set up camp beside the massive granite boulders of the Devils Marbles Conservation Reserve. Spend some time getting to know Tennant Creek – a town known for its proud Aboriginal heritage, gold rushes and pioneering past.

Barra country

Continue north through expansive cattle stations and on to Judbarra/Gregory National Park, known for its Barramundi, Boab trees and limestone landscapes. Finish up at Timber Creek and fully unwind with a boat cruise or fishing trip.
