There are three separate payments to participate in the event.


Donation – a minimum of $1,000 per person.  This payment is to the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

            The donation is not subject to GST.  All donations over $2 are tax deductible.


Both the Entry Fee & Disbursements Fee are payable to Outback Car Trek Pty Limited.

Entry Fee - $300 per person. 

The entry fee includes GST.  The fee is calculated on a cost recovery basis and is designed to cover the costs of setting up and administering the event.

Disbursements Fee - $825 per person. 

The disbursements fee includes GST and is also calculated on a cost recovery basis.  This fee pays for most of the meals on the event, your public liability insurance, any tours and national parks fees where required, 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.
