Love a Shortcut?
do Australia’s Longest,
The Outback Way

From Laverton, Western Australia to Winton, Queensland, via the Northern Territory’s Red Centre, The Outback Way, carves a well-worn 2700km track through the heart of Australia. The Outback Way is Australia’s Route 66, the great Australian Road Trip… unearth the magic and immerse yourself in a journey like never before.

It’s a road trip that lets you sink into the peaceful colours of the Australian Outback, where your odometer collects memories with every kilometer.

Whether you are zig-zagging the nation or you want a shorter invigorating getaway to awaken your senses -you’ll marvel at nature’s diversity, feel the cool waters in shimmering gorges wash over you, be inspired by the unique architecture of every mountain range, and hear the desert oaks whisper in their majestic forests.

Immerse yourself in Indigenous culture, pioneering heritage, follow the Art Trail, get into the country spirit of an outback festival,  and enjoy the outback hospitality at every town you pull into.
