 Outback Tour FAQs

We offer a safety net for people who may not be as confident about venturing into remote locations by themselves. There's also the knowledge experience that goes into the planning. If you haven't been somewhere before, it's tough to get the most out of a trip. We know exactly where to go, how long it takes to get there, where to camp, what the facilities are like and how to best use your time to see all of the highlights.

Interestingly enough, this scenario happens very rarely. We require that your vehicle is well maintained and inspected by a mechanic before the trip and we ask you to carry certain spares. Most mechanical issues don't stop you from moving. We will do everything we can to get you mobile again and in the case that your vehicle needs expert attention, we can get your vehicle to a mechanic or to a position where it can be recovered by a flatbed truck.

It is recommended that you have the highest level of NRMA/RAQC type cover because it can help with your expenses if the worst happens. Travel insurance is also highly recommended so you are not out of pocket if you cannot complete a trip. 

Contact us prior to booking and we can discuss the requirements of a 4WD or trailer for the Outback Tour.

You will need a high clearance 4WD in good mechanical order with low range and light truck (LT) tyres with at least 50% tread remaining.

An off-road trailer needs to have independent suspension, good ground clearance and be sturdy enough to survive many days on corrugated roads.

You will need a fridge and supplies to last 5 days, as well as camping equipment that is effieicnt to put up and take down. 

Fuel is generally readily available on the Outback Tour. We regularly pass through towns where fuel is available.  In a worst case scenario, you will need a range of 600 kms. 

There a a number of places to buy supplies on the Outback tour. We will be passing through towns along the way. Some of the overnight stops have restaurant facilities where you can buy dinner. A full list of places to buy food is supplied when you book the tour.
