Gemtree is the gateway to the Hart's Range gem fields, where you can experience the thrill of fossicking for your own gems. The Plenty Highway to Gemtree from the Stuart Highway, is a good sealed road.
The Plenty Highway is part of the Outback Way, a popular tourist route of 2,750kms across three states. From Western Australia to Queensland, the Outback Way starts (or finishes) from Laverton in Western Australia, through Alice Springs in the Northern Territory, to Winton in Queensland. Seven interconnecting routes contribute, including the Great Central Road, Tjukaruru Road, Lasseter Highway, Stuart Highway, Plenty Highway, Donohue Highway and Min Min Byway.
