Queensland's Outback

Getting Around

There are so many ways to get around the Outback - regardless of whether you want to take the wheel, or sit back and enjoy the ride.

Most of Queensland's Outback is accessible by family sedan, and towns are usually no more than two hours apart. For the off-road enthusiast, there are plenty of opportunities to go bush and explore secret attractions, taking forgotten roads meandering through spectacular Outback scenery.

Or, if you want to leave the car at home, let someone else get behind the wheel. Coach services operate to all major Outback centres along the Overlander's Way from Townsville to Mount Isa, and on the Matilda Highway from Charleville to Karumba.

If the romance of train travel lures you, Queensland Rail offers a variety of journeys. And finally, for those short on time, or for that business holiday, regular flights operated by QantasLink, Qantas and MacAir Airlines service many regional centres.
