Default Our Hanns Track Adventure

Day 1: Bruce Rock to Niagara Dam.

This video is from our dash cam and covers Day One of our "Our Hanns Track Adventure" trip from July 2018. The video shows us traveling along Cramphorne Road, then Moorine South Road up to The Great Eastern Hwy at Moorine. Onwards toward Coolgardie, then picked up Yarri Road, just outside Kalgoorlie.
Heading North East along Yarri Road we passed through Gindalbie at which point we turned North along Donkey Rocks Road ( which was more like a donkey track). The tracks in this area can be a bit confusing and we made a navigation error near Marsh Dam which caused us to take a track that headed more North West towards the Carr Boyd Mine. This track was in reasonable condition so we decided to continue along it with the motto "One track is as good another".
Later, we came across a track that headed North East and back towards Donkey Rocks Road so we headed down it. This track proved not to have much traffic and was heavily overgrown. But we pushed on anyway, added a few more scratches to the Pajero, but not a problem this is what we do and why we brought the Pajero. "To go where very few have gone before". We rejoined Donkey Rocks Road some 40 minutes later having only traveled 6.2kms
By now it was getting late in the day and the sun was low in the West. The setting sun proved to be a challenge as looking straight into the sun made the track very hard to see and at points we had to slow down to a crawl.
We hit the Kookynie Road turned right knowing that we didn't have far to go. A few more kilometers saw us arriving at Niagara Dam almost at sun down. That's it, finished driving . Time to setup camp make something to eat and look forward to tomorrow to continue Our Hanns Track Adventure.
In about 10 hours we had travelled 638kms in just over 10 Hours with a average speed 62 kph.

Hanns Track - Day 5: Laverton to Yeo Homestead

Finally found some time and have completed editing Day 5. Hopefully Day 6 will be done a bit quicker.

This video is a compilation from our dash cam and covers Day 5 of our "Our Hanns Track Adventure" trip from July 2018. The video has been compiled from several hours of footage which has been edited down to about 18 minutes with informative text and photos added.

We woke up at the Laverton Caravan Park on a fine, sunny morning. After a quick packing of the Pajero we headed into town to fill up the fuel tank and buy a few items at the local IGA. The plan today is to Visit Frank Hanns Camp then head towards the abandoned but restored Yeo Homestead. The homestead is in the Yeo Lake Nature Reserve in the Great Victoria Desert, Western Australia.

Frank Hanns Camp is about 15kms North East of Laverton, off White Cliffs Road. After finding the Camp and a well dug by Frank Hann which is south of Hanns Camp, we headed back to White Cliffs Rd and continued towards Yeo. We headed along the White Cliffs - Yamarna Road in a North East direction. The road is in pretty good condition, probably due to mines out this way. We passed several mining trucks although couldn't work out what they were transporting.

After a couple of hours we reached the abandoned Yamarna Station. A few quick photos before we turned right onto the Anne Beadell Highway heading East. Initially this road was in good condition. There were plenty of turn offs to mine sites which explained why. We are now well into the Great Victoria Desert and the Anne Beadell Hwy was starting to become worse.

We reached Point Sunday, climbed to the top, took a few photos and after a short break continued on our way. From this point on the road became more corrugated with soft sandy sections and it narrowed down to pretty much a single lane. The Anne Beadell Hwy runs West/East and so do the dunes of the Great Victoria Desert. This makes the drive easier than trying to cross the dunes. Around mid afternoon we reached Yeo Homestead. We will be camping overnight and look forward to a few hours of rest.

Yep, I agree. I'm developing an affair with that place. I'm toying with the idea of going out to Nichol's Knob again.....my feet are saying...Nooooooo......But first, I head for the Kennedy Ranges this morning for 10 days away

HannsTrack - Day 6: Yeo Homestead to Lily Rockhole

This video is a compilation of photos and dash cam footage from Day 6 of our "Our Hanns Track Adventure" trip from July 2018. The video has been compiled from several hours of footage and several photos which has been edited down with informative text added.

We awoke at Yeo Homestead to a cold cloudy day. A bit of drizzle forced us to move to the verandah of the homestead building whilst we had breaky and prepped for the days travel. The rain didn't last long and we left Yeo Homestead heading North towards Yeo Lake rather than taking the shorter route along The Anne Beadell Highway.

Yeo Lake was picturesque. The track crosses parts of the lake system and proved to be no dramas with the exception of one small section which was a bit soft. Although this track would be impassable in the wet season or after heavy rains.

We rejoined the Anne Beadell Hwy and after a stop to clear Spinifex from the Pajero's underneath and radiator continued on to a flat topped butte call "Bishop Rileys Pulpit" named by Frank Hann in June 1906. A few kilometres past this rock saw use turning to the left on a shot line which took us to "Wilkinson Range" also named by Frank Hann on his May 1903 expedition through the area. After a turn to the North we crossed our first sand dune on this trip. The sand dunes here abouts are low vegetated dunes and are easy to cross.

Around 2.45pm we reached "Lily Rockhole" gorge (again named by Fran Hann in May 1903) nestled in Wilkinson Range, Great Victoria Desert, Western Australia. This is where we camped overnight before continuing on "Hanns Track".

Travel Time: 4 hours and 31 minutes
Travel Distance: 83 Kms
Average Speed: 18 kph
