General Information:

National Route 1 is a major route in WA.

The route varies in form from multi-laned arterial road, suburban road, to single carriageway rural highway. It passes through commercial, industrial, residential and agricultural land, and also through state forest and conservation areas. The route forms the main road between Geraldton and Perth and has a vast mix of traffic including road trains.

The Brand Highway replaced the old alignment from Dongara to Perth (The Midlands Road) and was named in honour of former premier Sir David Brand. It runs from Muchea to the North Western Highway interchange in Geraldton.
