Like Route 1, 101 and 66 in the US, the Aussies also have a few legendary highways. No comprehensive plan for a National Highway system was put into place until 1974 when connectivity was finally worked out at a political level. Perhaps the first highway with a purpose in Australia was created during WWII to defend against potential Japanese Invasion. The Stuart Highway created a North-South route across the continent and deserves the title of the Main Highway. Other routes claim primacy and a few have genuine claims. Until you travel them and meet up with a road train. no concept of the Australian Highway System makes any sense at all. As a footnote, US Route 66 never went from coast to coast, It never went to either coast. It stopped short of the Pacific, and its Easternmost terminus was Chicago. So much for a claim to history.
