Mallee scrub narrows the field to three states, and knocks Tasmania out.
With a Victorian numberplate, and an entry the Mallee, the field is narrowed to Victoria, which it is.

There are only six main roads in the Mallee, so it will take no more than six entries to determine which one.

Yes, Calder Hwy, knocking the five others.
Now to narrow the field.
I will not accept Melbourne and Mildura as the nearby locations.

Last night I held off asking for the other end, noting that Swishy and Paul were neck & neck, but that a dark horse could yet overtake the leaders. Ouyen counted as one end, but which way to jump for the other? By getting the other end of the anonymous section, Paul won by a nose.
Calder Hwy between Ouyen and Hattah. The highway parallels the railway, but the view is obscured by dense mallee scrub. The VR bus had been retired from its Sandringham - Beaumaris run (replaced with newer buses), and was in use to bring in workers for a major track-relaying program. When it was obtained for Beaumaris, that suburb still had unmade roads and dense tea-tree scrub. However, this was a 1977 photo, not early 1950s. The Calder enters the Mallee just north of Wycheproof: the change from black/grey loam soil to red soil. For much of the distance there is a thin strip of scrub, obscuring a view of wheat fields. North from Ouyen there are stretches with continuous scrub into the distance. There are two minor railway sidings in this section (Kiamal and Trinita), but they don't really count as identifiable road locations. The photo was taken between Kiamal and Hattah. The roadhouse at Hattah has a reputation for serving particularly good truckie food. Ouyen often features in the news as the hottest location in Victoria that day.
I'd held off with this photo for a few years, thinking that it was too difficult. Instead, the result was known with just a few entries.

The usual prize, and responsibility for the next, passes to Paul.

I'm pretty sure this is only the second time I have had a go at this

So apparently the last time I made it all to hard, so kept it simple as can be, one of the main highways across this wide brown land
