Can I drive at night driving in Outback Queensland?

Night driving is possible, but not recommended for travellers who are new to the region.

Road hazards are more difficult to see and kangaroos are more active at dawn, dusk, and throughout the night.

Driving at night increases the risk of fatigue, not to mention you’ll miss the beautiful countryside going by! If you must drive at night ensure your headlights are working properly.

 If your vehicle does not have a bull-bar, drive behind someone who does, like a mate or a road train, so any surprise damage from kangaroos is minimised.
