The trip from Broken Hill to Adelaide.

(This is another old page)

The estimated time is travelling at an average speed of 85 (constant, no stops). On my trip to Broken Hill my average speed was 73.83 Km/h, not counting most of my stops and time travelling through towns, however it includes travel in the city at an average speed of 40. I was travelling slower in the first part due to excessive wind and bumps.

You'll probably run ahead of the Estimated time for the first part of the trip. My Ben's estimated time uses the average speed in the right hand column and should be more accurate.

Please note that the average speed is much below the crusing speed and even further below top speed. I anticipate a cruising speed of around 100 to 110 Km/h, where possible. The corners and towns are what brings the average speed down.
