General Information:

B201 is the former Sturt Highway through Berri and surrounding towns. The B201 is the old Alternate National Route 20, which came about during the 1990s when the Sturt Highway was re-routed to pass through Monash.

Just 4 km north of the Berri town centre, you'll find one of the Australian classic 'big' tourist attractions: The Big Orange.

The route has many remnants / relics from its days as the original highway, as can be seen in the photos below. Also included below is a map of the route, which is not clickable like others within the site.
