OK so you all reckon you know Oz pretty well. Which two of the following places are the furthest apart (as the crow flies)? No looking at maps.

Cape Leeuwin
Cape Leveque
Ningaloo
Steep Point

Cape Howe
Cape Byron
Cape York
Wilsons Promontory

How far apart are they?
3372 km
3577 km
3997 km
4046 km
4179 km
4977 kmBob

Readnik,

not many others have lashed out with a reply yet. When I measured SP to CB I got a different number. Is yours an official distance?Bob

bob...

I did not mean to sound confident...i really have no idea about the distance or the towns that are the furtherest apart. Just guessing...must have been somewhere close if you are second guessing yourself mate

I know that Steep Point to Cape Byron is where Oz is the widest in the girth...a bit like me:-) Guess is 4046km. How come we are not allowed to look it up and you were?
Cheers,
Willie

Using the Discover Oz streets and tracks application, and specifically the measurement tool, I got a distance of 4046 from Cape Byron to a point 13 km north of Ningaloo. Steep point may be the most westerly point in Oz, but because it is further north, Ningaloo is the furthest point from Cape Byron.Bob

Nice question, and just as a follow up, which town claims to be the furthest from the sea in any direction?
