Australia, Millstream National Park, 28 June 2020

In order to get to the Millstream National Park you have to travel down private roads owned by the Rio Tinto Mining Company. And before they allow you to travel on these Rail Access Roads you must first watch a series of training videos and complete a test of multiple choice questions at the end. If you get the answers wrong you can keep repeating the test until you get them right. Once you have answered the questions correctly you are issued with a free permit to travel on their roads, valid for 30 days.

The road itself being mission critical is kept in good condition though this can change quite suddenly in the Wet (Cyclone) season. This is winter the dry season.



Millstream is an oasis in the desert fuelled by a vast underground aquifer that also supplies fresh water to Karratha, Hedland, the mining industry, etc.
