The Trans Access Road is an exciting journey linking Western Australia and South Australia via an unsealed road. It’s one of the Australian longest roads.
The road is 993km (617km) long running alongside the Trans-Australian railway line which was constructed in 1917. 4x4 vehicle required. Dusty in the dry season and boggy or washed away in the wet season. Exercise caution when travelling on unsealed roads as isolated weather events may affect the road conditions. The road begins just east of Kalgoorlie-Boulder and extends due east, following the railway line, until the West Australian and South Australian border.
The track passes through some of the most isolated areas on the Australian continent. Carry lots of water and fuel with you. Driving at night is best avoided. Mobile phone coverage along the route is varied. The Trans-Access road is a long, long stretch of road that crosses a whole lot of nothing, but it is an ever changing nothing. Red dirt roads get very slippery when wet.
