The Matilda Way is one road that most definitely leads to adventure, and a different one each day. The fully sealed 1812 kilometre highway that stretches from the New South Wales border all the way to the Gulf of Carpentaria, from Cunnamulla to Karumba. Traversing the 'real outback' the route is filled with friendly characters, unique attractions and unspoiled natural sites.

Four days is a comfortable drive, depending on how long you stay in each town. The road itself is fully sealed although, as you'll be sharing it with huge road trains and a selection of stock and native animals, it pays to be wary and understand outback road courtesy. When a truck is approaching, the best and most polite approach is to pull off onto the side of the road and wait for the truck to pass. You'll protect your vehicle from rock damage and the truckies will thank you for it. As you're travelling, check the byways along the route; there are plenty of side-trips that add to the overall outback experience.
