Over the years I've been fortunate enough to travel on various sections of the Canning. I was able to capture my most recent trips on Video and whilst many of these are sprinkled throughout my blogs, I thought I'd group them together here to give you a taste of the conditions you can expect along the way.


Let me say that yes, the dunes are high and sandy, yes the corrugations are as terrible as they are plentiful but, on a trip of 2000 km or so they are only part of the varied landscapes you will drive through. The Canning is truly one of the great outback journeys and with forethought, research and planning, is an achievable and a memorable journey.


Here, in video form, is a representative sample of the conditions you can expect to encounter along the way as well as a few of the many highlights.
