Overlanders Way

The Overlander's Way is a 1550 kilometre driving adventure across the breadth of Queensland and into the Northern Territory, the Overlander's Way follows the paths of our droving heroes who brought vast herds of live cattle from the east Kimberley to the coast. The route, which later served as an important supply line during World War II, starts at Townsville and takes in the outback towns of Charters Towers, Hughenden, Richmond, Julia Creek, Cloncurry, Mount Isa and Camooweal.

A fully sealed road, the route follows the paths of great explorers, the Kalkadoons and the pioneers. Make the time to stop and explore the side roads of the Outback towns along the way and discover the real character of the Outback.


Wind your way through the Queensland Heritage Trails Network attractions at Mount Isa, Cloncurry, Richmond, Charters Towers and Townsville where you will experience the heady gold rush days, a larger-than-life mining tour, fossils over 100 million years old, routes of former explorers and rich indigenous heritage.
