This desolate duty road is the route out of Winton as you head towards Lark Quarry (coming soon). Here you have left civilisation and to some degree you are on your own with the elements. It can get hot. Very hot! Take water, ensure the car is well fuelled, and respect the road! Enjoy it's rugged, raw beauty.
The Australian Outback is just about everywhere else that isn't the cities....about 6.5million square kms of it (or 2.5million square miles), inhabited by less than 60,000 people. The term Outback is used to describe the emptiness, remoteness and huge distances of inland Australia, and the fact that most people still don't know much about it! People who live here respect it and love it. They love the fact that nature reigns supreme here, they love the unspoiled beauty, the space and the freedom.
