Description

The Outback Way is an adventure not to be missed.

Officially  Australia’s “Longest Shortcut”  The Outback Way extends from Laverton, Western Australia to Winton, Queensland via Central Australia. The Outback Way passes through remote regions with unsealed roads that are best travelled in high-clearance four-wheel drives.
The route can be challenging, but the landscapes, colours and night skies are legendary making it a truly life changing adventure; With over 30 interpretive panels along the route it introduces travelers to the stories of the Outback. In between, visitors can view caves, wander through Indigenous Galleries, enjoy guided outback tours, visit a remote meteorology station, or try fossicking in gem fields.

Visit Uluru (Ayers Rock) the worlds largest single rock monolith, Kata Tjuta (The Olga’s), MacDonnell Ranges plus many more natural wonders of Australia.

Permits are required for travelling from Laverton to Uluru. These permits can be organized by contacting the Ngaanyatjarra Lands Council (www.ngaanyatjarra.org.au) and the Central Lands Council (www.clc.org.au).
