L'Outback Way

The Outback Way is a great four-wheel driving adventure with legendary landscapes, colours and night skies.

The Outback Way is Australia’s longest shortcut and is an adventure you’ll never forget.

The drive is made up of seven inter-connecting roads that take you from Laverton, Western Australia, through to Alice Springs in the Northern Territory and finishes in Winton, Queensland.

The track cuts right through the middle of Australia and totals 2,800km in length.

You will need a four-wheel-drive to complete this track as you mainly travel along unsealed roads. This route almost halves the trip time if you were to travel via sealed roads…who doesn’t love a shortcut?

The Outback Way passes through many different types of climates, landscapes and Australian scenery so make sure you have your camera ready!
