Information

Churchill's Head is on a section of the old highway which gives the driver an opportunity to traverse a portion of the Old Stuart Highway. This roadside rock formation was named by soldiers traveling to Darwin during World War II. Perhaps it was they who first stuck a piece of piping in the rock to provide some comic relief to an otherwise long and dull trip.
