The NSW Outback region has a history dating back over 40,000 years and its mystery and beauty make it a brilliant place to visit.
During your stay, your safety is the highest priority. Please use the national park offices as an information source, and as a check in point if you’re heading to very remote areas.
It’s a region of extreme temperatures, you might want to avoid the midsummer heat – and remember the nights can be cold. Autumn and spring are the best times for extended stays and long drives.
- Tell someone your travel plans before setting out
- Be prepared for unsealed roads that may be impassable after rain. Check with local park offices, Roads and Maritime Services, the NRMA and tourism and national park offices to plan your drive.
- There are some Outback roads unsuitable for 2WD vehicles, so make sure you’re fully confident before driving off
- Keep your vehicle in top condition and carry extra fuel, spare tyres and wheel-changing equipment
- Take extra food and extra water
- Remain with a broken down or stranded vehicle to make rescue easier
