The Adventure Way

The Adventure Way is a road trip that takes you from Brisbane to Adelaide via Queensland's richest grain and cotton producing area surrounding Dalby. It travels through Brigalow and Belah Belts to the outback plains where mulga lines the road and eventually gives way to a treeless gibber landscape at the Queensland-South Australia border.

The rewards are spectacular - vivid sunrises and sunsets, night skies with millions of stars sprinkled across the heavens. Discover the awe-inspiring landscape, the native flora and fauna, the rich history of our early pioneers, opal fossicking and the spirit of adventure inside us all.

From gut wrenching stories of spirit and tragedy, Queensland's outback has become famous and evoloved into a must see destination. Retrace the tracks of the Cobb and Co, the first people movers of the outback, as you traverse the unique and fascinating Adventure Way. All along the route, there is fine accommodation, great hearty meals and plenty of water for hot relaxing showers provided courtesy of the Artesian Basin, the vein of life running under this start beautiful land.

From Innamincka, follow the historic Strzelecki Track to the Flinders Ranges and finally to Adelaide. Bitumen roads now replace the rutted tracks once taken by horse drawn coaches of all but the last 150km, enabling those in a two-wheel drive to experience the richness of this route.

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 days if time permits to explore the byways.
