Originally stretching from Derby to Gibb River Station, the road was completed in 1967, and stretches for 672km from just outside Derby to the Wydnham turnoff. The Gibb is a challenging drive, and connects stations and aboriginal communities with the towns at either end, and is closed for up to six months every year due to wet season rains.
