Dorat Road: a memorable road trip

Dorat Road, also known as State Route 23, is a very scenic single lane sealed road located in the Northern Territory of Australia.

The road is 65 km (40 mi) long and goes from Adelaide River to near Long Airfield. It was built during World War II. In the 1960s most bridges and floodways were resurfaced, and the entire length is currently sealed

The drive is definitely worth it. There are many excellent photo opportunities here. Don’t forget your camera! The road provides access to tourist attractions including Robin Falls and Douglas-Daly Hot Springs, several World War II heritage locations. No vehicles over 19 metres in length are permitted on this road.
