Gents.... I'm wanting to build up a bit of a Database of Iconic Tracks & Places throughout Australia that I can use to plan for future trips & eventually retirement time.... I'm also searching for gps tracklogs of these tracks to help in the planning..... Which I've managed to find a few, just got to name them.....

I know there will many differing personal opinions of what is a Iconic Track/Place, but I'm open to suggestions as it will all go into my database for the near future & retirement touring.....

G'day Rob

That's a comprehensive list, but you've missed Hindley Street in Adelaide. LOL

There is a "Butchers Track" in W.A. It heads east from about a midway point between Billabong and Overlander Roadhouses on the Geraldton-Carnarvon Highway.
It comes out north of the Murchison Settlement on the Mullewa- Gascoyne Junction Road.
