Adventure Way - Queensland

St George, Balonne Area

Retrace the tracks of Cobb & Co, the first people movers of the outback, as you traverse the unique and fascinating Adventure Way. Bitumen roads now replace the rutted tracks once taken by horse drawn coaches of all but the last 150 km, enabling even those in a two-wheel drive to experience the richness of this route. The rewards are spectacular - vivid sunrises and sunsets, night skies with millions of stars sprinkled across the heavens. It will take your breath away. The Adventure Way takes you from Queensland's richest grain and cotton producing area, Dalby, through brigalow and belah belts to the outback plains where mulga lines the road tinged orange from the surrounding sandy soils. The mulga slowly gives way to a treeless gibber landscape and Queensland meets South Australia where the Adventure Way terminates at Innamincka. You won't be on the road long till you understand why they call it the Adventure Way! From gut wrenching stories of spirit and tragedy, Queensland's outback has become famous and evolved into a must see destination. However, don't think venturing into the outback means a loss of civilisation and all the mod cons we have come to regard as the essentials of life. All along the route, there is fine accommodation, great hearty meals, and best of all plenty of water for hot relaxing showers provided courtesy of the Artesian Basin, the vein of life running under this stark beautiful land. You could easily accomplish the whole drive in two days but then you would miss all the exciting activities and sites along the way, and there are plenty. This drive has a different adventure to be experienced each step, characters and sites exclusive to each area who will welcome and share with you their special part of Queensland. It's worthwhile planning to take a few extra days if time permits to explore the byways.
