tips and insights

When to go

Although the best time for visiting Australia's coastal areas like Sydney is during the Southern Hemisphere summer (November to March), it is the worst time for the southern and middle portions of the Outback. Temperatures sometimes exceed 40ºC (105ºF) in that season. And it can become quite dusty.

Exploring the Outback

You can do it on your own. If you plan to leave the paved road for the solitude and adventure of dirt tracks, drive a 4WD. And be wilderness-wise and well-provisioned in case you get lost or your vehicle breaks down in the middle of nowhere.

Alternative option

A wiser choice for most travelers is to book an organized land or air tour. You'll be in the hands of seasoned professionals who know how to avoid and survive unexpected emergencies.
