This one comes with an annoying mistake - a title for Kunawarritji over North Pool. Don’t know how that escaped review.

Other than that, a lot of very nice drone shots… this was a massive journey just to get there.

The original filename hints at the original working title - “travelling half way across Australia”.



In this video, we embark on the nearly 3500km journey from Melbourne to Wiluna to begin our travel down the Canning Stock Route. Even this is an epic journey in itself, as we stay at the remote Border Village Roadhouse, visit the former Eucla Telegraph Station (or what of it is above the sand), travel across the vast empty but spectacular Nullarbor Plains, camp near a dam, then head up through a bunch of very small WA towns until we finally reach Wiluna, visit Well 1 and stay at the beautiful North Pool, then prepare for the real adventure…

(extra lower third in North Pool, accidentally labelling it as Kunawarritji - oops…)
