The Stuart Highway is named after John McDouall Stuart, one of Australia’s most famous inland explorers.  It is named in honour of his achievement of leading of the first successful expedition to traverse the Australian mainland from south to north and return to his starting point in South Australia.  He never lost a man, despite the harshness of the country he encountered.
