Outback Travellers Guides - EssentialsThe Outback Travellers Track Guides offer a unique view of the roads and tracks throughout the Australian Outback. All of our map guides have an emphasis on 'safety' for 4 wheel drivers by indicating the location of grids, gates, floodways, creeks & rivers, crests, dips, markers, sharp bends, claypans, sand dunes, bridges through to bulldust holes and more. We use photographs to visually support specific features along the tracks, including GPS Co-ordinates and distances throughout. Both designated and bush campsites are indicated along with geographical and historical locations, contact details, preparation and permit information.
