Outback Travellers Guides - Essentials

The 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. A total package for the outback traveller from 'first hand' experience, titles are available for 28 destinations. Buy Yours Now

Spotlight on the Red Centre

Central Australia, known as the Red Centre, occupies the lower half of the Northern Territory, including Alice Springs, Yulara, Andado, Finke, Tennant Creek, Tanami and the Plenty and Sandover Highways. April - October is the ideal time to visit, while temperatures are less extreme, and a 4WD and degree of self-sufficiency are recommended when exploring this enormous region.
