Welcome to the Outback Safer Driving Series
There are so many spectacular destinations to visit along the Sturt’s Steps Touring Route and all of them are accessible to travellers who are keen for adventure and well prepared.
However, traveling through this region can present a number of challenges, including isolation, remote travel, poor or no mobile phone coverage, long distances between destinations, changing road conditions, and a number of other hazards.
Preparation for traveling into this region starts well before you leave home. In this series, we will explore trip preparation, driving habits for both bitumen and unsealed roads, towing and the extra stresses that that entails, and share some tips with you as to some of the common hazards that may present themselves throughout your journey.
Please remember that all travel is at your own risk. This advice is for general information and entertainment purposes only and you should consult a travel professional before travelling. Road users are responsible for knowing and following the road rules – and you can find links to the relevant road rules on this website.
I hope you enjoy this series, but not as much as I hope you will enjoy jumping in the car and hitting the Sturt’s Steps Touring Route. Make sure you download all relevant information and check road conditions before you leave – while you still have mobile reception.
Stay safe. See you on the road.
