Australia – Route

Our plan is to see the remote portions of the Australian Outback. We are targeting these areas since we are shipping our own vehicle and trailer. We can always come back to see the touristy areas and less remote areas with a less trusted rented car or 4WD.

Sydney > the Simpson Desert > Alice Springs/Ayers Rock > Tanami Track > the Canning Stock Route > the Gunbarrel Highway > back to Alice Springs > somewhere on the coast to ship out the vehicle
