The Outback Way stretches right across Australia from Laverton, Western Australia in the west to Winton, Queensland in the east, via central Australia and covering some 2,800 km. This spectacular self-drive route can be further extended from Perth on WA's western coast to Cairns, on Queensland east coast.

As a self-drive route this spectacular drive passes through Central Australia, passing iconic attractions such as Uluru and Kata-Tjuta. The heart of Australia is Alice Springs that provides access to a great number of natural attractions and smorgasbord of festivals and events.

The Outback Way is made up of seven inter-connecting roads including The Great Central Road (WA); Tjukaruru Road, Lasseter Highway, Stuart Highway and Plenty Highway (NT); and Donohue Highway and Min Min Byway (QLD). Collectively these are THE OUTBACK WAY.
