Driving directions

This route is not the shortest but only has 6 km of gravel. The gravel roads around here are in only fair shape due to large volume of truck movements.

  1. Come up the Brand highway (1) and don't get off for any alt routes.
  2. 7 km from Dongara you will come to a “T” intersection, Turn right to Mingenew (116).
  3. Go into Mingenew and turn left over the railway line.
  4. Stay on this road for approx 1 1/2 km and you will see Depot Hill Road on your left, turn here (aka Allanooka Springs Rd, Geraldton 100 km).
  5. Stay on this road for approx 15 - 16 km and you will come to a sweeping left hand corner (Altered intersection, 80 km/h).
  6. Half way around this corner, on the right, is a gravel road called Depot Hill Road, North. Turn Here.
  7. Follow this gravel road for 6 Km and you will see us on the right at the 2142 RSM (Road Side Marker).
