It’s been a while since i took a holiday. In less than three weeks I’ll be setting off from Denmark (WA) to visit the folks in Byron Bay (NSW). I’m travelling ‘The Outback Way‘ aka Australia’s longest shortcut. Google maps tells me the journey is 5,556 km, not including any detours. I’ll be travelling unsealed outback roads (such as the Great Central Road), some dirt tracks, and probably a dry riverbed or two. There is plenty to see along the way, including the Olgas, King’s Canyon, Uluru, and numerous gorges and national parks.
The Landcruiser is in good shape and ready to go. I’m now busy sorting out camping gear, recovery gear, maps/apps, communications devices, and permits to access aboriginal land.
I’m not sure how long it’ll take, but i’m guessing it’ll be just under three weeks. And then I’ve got to drive back again.
