Welcome to Outback Way


The road is sandy and corrugated in places, but it's wide and suitable for all vehicles. It can be closed for several days after rain. Fuel is available at roughly 300km intervals on the WA side.

Coming from Laverton, three WA roadhouses all provide food, fuel and limited mechanical services – Tjukayirla at 303km, Warburton at 548km and Warakurna at 773km. All offer camping, budget rooms and self-contained units. Book ahead as rooms are limited. Evening meals and breakfasts are usually offered by prior arrangement.

At Warburton visit the Tjulyuru Cultural & Civic Centre, which contains an extensive collection of Ngaanyatjarra Aboriginal paintings.

Warakurna, Warburton and Giles run on NT time, 1½ hours ahead of WA time.
