The Binns Track, named after Bill Binns, is an amalgam of roads and tracks linking Mt Dare, on the edge of the Simpson Desert, with Timber Creek in the Northern Territory’s Top End. It includes Gregory National Park, the Devils Marbles, Tennant Creek, the Davenport Ranges National Park, Arltunga Historic Goldfields, Alice Springs and Old Andado while covering some of the Northern Territory’s best 4-wheel drive tracks.
The Binns Track is full of interest – from the tropics of the north to the deserts of the south; the beauty of the East MacDonnell ranges, gorges and rivers; and the waterholes and rocky terrain protected by the Davenport Ranges National Park. There are historical features along the track such as the telegraph stations of the Old Telegraph Line, the goldfields of Arltunga in the East MacDonnell ranges and the pioneering style of Old Andado.
All this and more can be found in this DVD, which includes a crossing of the Simpson Desert and has a running time of 115 minutes.
