ARB Warn Outback Challenge
2004 Spectator Package - May 15th - 22nd

The infamous ARB Warn Outback Challenge will once again be held outside Broken Hill, May 15th through to 22nd and this year we are opening the three most popular competition areas for viewing in an all-new package which allows spectators to choose which stages they want to watch each day. Combined with the first competition areas in and around Broken Hill it promises to be more thrilling than ever, providing the ultimate action packed holiday in the Australian Outback.

Free spectator merchandise
More information on the event and the participants
Special spectator ID to allow easier entry into events
Full details of competition areas before you arrive at Broken Hill
Later starts in the morning (slightly anyway)
Ability to choose your preferred viewing area each day

What we are offering is an opportunity to be involved with the event while it is in the township of Broken Hill and then experience the event watching the competitors of at the special stage of your choice and then finishing up with a seat at the presentation back in Broken Hill.

Due to the fact that our event is held on private sheep stations we can only offer a full package and will not have day passes for sale. Our camps are often remotely based on these properties which makes it impossible for spectators to come and go as they please. You can however leave early or join the full package after the 15th if it is organised before the event start.

Also because the event is run on private property and we want to offer the best experience possible we are limiting the number of spectator vehicles, so if you are interested, don't delay in applying for this unique outback experience.

Spectators, particularly overseas participants, who require assistance with planning their holiday ie, hire cars, flights, trains, travel insurance etc can contact us and we will place them in the hands of a travel agent in Melbourne who can help with planning and who is aware of our event itinerary.

Spectators will need to be completely self sufficient for the days spent out at the competition areas this being the morning of Monday 17th through to evening of Friday 21st May.

All spectators will stay at the central camp from Monday 17th through to Friday 21st and will visit one special stage area each day or you can stay back at camp if the action is al too much for you.

Spectators will be guided by their official spectator marshal for the duration of the event and they will be under the control of this designated official at all times.

Accommodation in town is the responsibility of spectators themselves, but the central camp housing the spectators area will be set aside by the Outback Challenge. These will be bush camps and there will be no toilet facilities so please ensure you bring along your own shovel, toilet paper, water etc. The area is suitable for off road campers. You also require an all wheel drive or four wheel drive vehicle to access most of the competition areas.
