In a loop starting and finishing at Laverton WA, this 1250km trip traverses dune systems and breakaway country, visiting ranges, gnamma holes, stunning rock outcrops, Aboriginal art sites and remote tracks established by
Len Beadell. To date, fewer than 100 people alive today have travelled the off-track section of this trip.
This is seriously remote adventure and a magnet for 4WDrivers seeking a new challenge. The trip is broken up into 10 legs and trip notes (accurate to 10 metres) are supported by waypoints in both lat/longs and grid references.
The book introduces a couple of firsts.
It is the first broadly available 4WD trip book to send travellers cross country following nothing more than a set of wheel marks for more than 200km. It is also the first 4WD trip book to invite travellers to traverse the exclusive native title country of the traditional owners - the Ngaanyatjarra People.
Hanns Track trip book includes a background on the desert people (Ngaanyatjarra) who roamed this land for thousands of years before the arrival of the white man. There’s a potted history of Hann’s exploits and of those who followed him into the G.V.D, a detailed article on trip and vehicle preparation including advice on tyres, communications, driving conditions, distances, terrain and plenty more.
