Outback Safer Driving Series

Welcome to the Corner Country ‘Safer Driver Series’.

Being able to travel safely in the outback is critical where there are long distances of changing and sometimes challenging road surfaces. There is often poor or no communication and scarce emergency resources. It is our hope that the series will assist those of you planning to travel into the outback once the COVID restrictions are lifted and beyond.

If you would like to listen to these audio versions as you travel along the Sturt’s Steps Touring Route, please be sure to down load the tour before leaving mobile data availability or while you have access to WiFi.

(Each episode has been vigorously checked by the Community Safety Team at Transport for NSW but please note these videos and audio versions are for entertainment purposes only – it’s your responsibility to know the road rules, and all travel to Corner Country is at your own risk).

We would like to acknowledge the support that we have been given by the NSW Government Community Safety Team during the development of the series, and many thanks to Jason King Media, Grant Bennett, and Getabout 4WD Training Services for doing the hard yards putting the series together.

In the words of our host John Eggenhuizen, ‘Stay safe – and we’ll see you out on the road’
