You’ve got the four-wheel-drive and you’ve got the spirit of adventure; let that lead you on the outback trip of a lifetime through southern Queensland to some of Australia’s most remote and iconic outback townships.
Getting away early is easy when you’re eager to explore new destinations, so there’s no doubt that Brisbane will be in your rearview mirror before you can say “let’s go on a road trip”. However, a cautious traveller is a safe traveller, so it pays to check RACQ’s updated road conditions before you leave for very remote areas like Birdsville and Innamincka. Also, ensure you pack enough food and water to last you a few days in case you get stranded outback; and an extra spare tyre won’t hurt, either. Tell a few loved ones where you’re going and when to expect you to arrive (don’t forget to call them and let them know you got there safe and sound) so they can raise the alarm if necessary – just in case!
