Driving in Western Australia Distances are usually quite long, so always make sure you have enough water for you and your travel companions. While there are many modern service stations along the way, make sure you always have more than enough fuel for your journey as some service stations may not have the type of fuel you require or be closed. Please note the only fuel between Newman and Meekatharra (420km) is at Kumarina Roadhouse (160km south of Newman). Where possible, avoid driving at dawn, dusk and at night as these are the times in which our wildlife is most prolific on the road.
