  • Disbursements Fee - $570 per participant.  This payment is to the Outback Car Trek Pty Limited.

(The disbursements fee includes GST, and is also calculated on a cost recovery only basis.  This fee pays for all of your meals on the event, your public liability insurance, and national parks fees, hand-outs and much more.)

All participants, including passengers, must be eligible to hold a full (i.e. non-provisional) driver's licence recognised in Australia.  This event is not suitable for minors.


Each of the overnight towns have been selected (in part) because of their wide range of accommodation options across all budget levels.  You are required to book and pay for your own accommodation.  We don’t do the bookings but we can provide recommendations about where to stay.  Or you can talk to the local tourism offices, or search the Internet.

As well as your accommodation, you will be required to pay your own out-of-pocket expenses, such as fuel, personal items, souvenirs, drinks with meals, etc.
