AT FIRST glance you’d think a trip to the centre of Australia would be as easy as plugging the co-ordinates into a GPS unit, but no, it ain’t that simple.
Why? Well, no one can really agree where the centre of Australia actually lies. In fact, there are five listed centre points: Centre of Gravity Method, Lambert Centre, the Farthest Point from the Coastline, the Median Point, and the Johnston Geodetic Station.
Some of the points are extremely elusive and hard to find, and some are on private land; so you’ll need permits to access them. Somewhat surprisingly, some of the centre points are even spread out in excess of 400km from each other.
