The Gibb River Road was originally constructed as a means of transporting cattle from the stations along the road into the meatworks at Derby and Wydndham. 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.
