Your guide to driving in the outback

Ever thought about taking a drive through the outback?

The great thing about Australia is there’s so much of it to see. Around 70% of Australia is classified as arid or semi-arid, receiving less than 500mm of rain each year. And with only 3% of the population actually living there, you can literally get away from it all.

But if you think you can just jump in your car and take a left at the black stump, think again. You need to plan your trip, and make sure you have all the essentials. And of course it’s also a good idea to have car insurance, just in case something goes wrong.

This slideshow will help make your trip a safe and enjoyable one.
