    Gents.... I'm wanting to build up a bit of a Database of Iconic Tracks & Places throughout Australia that I can use to plan for future trips & eventually retirement time.... I'm also searching for gps tracklogs of these tracks to help in the planning.....


    I know there will many differing personal opinions of what is a Iconic Track/Place, but I'm open to suggestions as it will all go into my database for the near future & retirement touring.....

    Given you have none for Vic and NSW, I will throw in the Border Track for Vic, and the Darling River Run for NSW, done both multiple times and will likely do them again. Probably more that I will think of later.

    Even though it is bitumen all the way there, if you are looking for Iconic places you cant get much more Iconic than Ayers Rock, throw in the Olgas, Kings Canyon and the East and West MacDonald Ranges in that neck of the woods............ Oh and the lesser known and not really Iconic, but none the less excellent Mount Connor.
