Goodlands Road

The most recent road constructed on Whitewells Station was the northen extension of Goodlands Road. It made a connection with the Great Northern Highway. It was built in the late 1990s just inside the southern boundary of Charles Darwin Reserve. It provides a short cut from the highway to the town of Kalannie to the south-east, partly to attract tourists.


The road was sited on the basis of land tenure rather than environmentally sound route selection. It was sited to avoid the area of unallocated Crown Land on the southern boundary of Charles Darwin Reserve which is earmarked to become a State nature reserve. Although deemed by the Environmental Protection Authority to have a potentially significant effect on the environment, it was constructed without an environmental impact assessment. It carries very little traffic, but did provide some value as a fire break in bushfires in 1993.
