How long is the Victoria Highway?

The road is 557 km (346 miles) long, running east-west from the Stuart Highway (at the town of Katherine in the Northern Territory of Australia, 320 kilometres southeast of Darwin) to the Great Northern Highway (between Timber Creek and Kununurra, in far northern Western Australia, at the eastern extremity of the Kimberley).

Is the Victoria highway sealed?

Part of the Highway 1, the road was built in 1970 and fully paved in the 1990’s. It’s subject to seasonal closures in the wet season, crossing Victoria River near Timber Creek. Water overtopping the bridge can cut the road for days or even weeks during the November-April rainy period.
