The Outback Way - Northern Territory Touring Routes

The Outback Way
• Web:
• The Outback Way is a magnificent tourism drive that stretches from Laverton in Western Australia, via Central Australia through the Northern Territory and west to Winton in Queensland. Covering some 2,800 km, this self-drive route passes by some iconic attractions such as Uluru and Kata-Tjuta. One of the key stops along The Outback Way is Alice Springs, the beating heart of Central Australia. Visitors can take a break here and spend some time exploring the magnificent surrounding natural attractions. If you time your visit, you can also enjoy the 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 roads and highways are THE OUTBACK WAY.

Red Centre Way - Northern Territory Touring Routes

Red Centre Way
• The 'Red Centre Way' is wonderful tourism experience connecting travellers from Alice Springs, through the West MacDonnell Range and the West MacDonnell National Park, Hermannsburg, Kings Canyon in Watarrka National Park, to the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.

It is a road network that takes in the Namatjira Drive, Mereenie Loop, Luritja Road and the Lasseter Highway. Much of the driving route is sealed road, except for the Mereenie Loop Road that connects to Namatjira Drive and the side road taking in Tnorala and Redbank Gorge, which are still unsealed and requires off road 4WD vehicles.

It is important that you confirm with the local visitor centre whether the roads are accessible, especially during and after a wet period, as many sections can get cut off by flood water and unsealed road may become impassable.
