Buntine Highway

Buntine Highway runs from the Victoria Highway to the Western Australian border

The Buntine Highway is a 570 kilometre highway in the Northern Territory and Western Australia, Australia. It was named after Noel Buntine in 1996. 

The highway runs through Killarney, Montejinni and Camfield stations before arriving to Kalkaringi, and then it cuts through Riveren, Inverway and Bunda stations, before reaching the WA border. The Buntine Highway runs roughly parallel to the Victoria Highway, and offers an alternate route into Western Australia. Some road sections may require a high clearance 4WD vehicle, in four-wheel-drive, driven by a driver experienced in 4WD drive techniques to drive the road without getting stuck.
This dirt track runs from the Victoria Highway via Top Springs and Kalkaringi and then to Halls Creek, Western Australia. The section between Victoria Highway and Kalkaringi is a single lane sealed road but the rest is unsealed.

Although it can be a reasonably easy drive in favourable conditions it also has the potential to be a very difficult track and at times impassable after wet weather. The road links Dunmurra (NT) with Halls Creek (WA) and passes through Top Springs. It is very important to check rainfall in this area before setting off and make sure you are well prepared for the trip.
