Always tell someone (or the local Police Station) where you are going and when you expect to finish.

This cycle journey takes you across the middle of Outback Australia between the Red Centre to Darwin. It is a best described by Cyclewayz rider Josiah, "The Australian Outback holds notoriety as a barren and hostile place. This reputation is almost completely spot on. But don't let that fool you into thinking cycling across it would be dull. The earth painted rust-red, the giant termite mounds which pierce up through the ground (some dressed in clothes) and the colossal road trains which shake the world as they thunder past. I had worried about this initial fervour wearing off, but perhaps surprisingly, I never grew tired of the outback.

This ride takes you from Alice Springs To Darwin via the Stuart highway and beautiful Northern Territory National Parks. In outback terms, the Stuart Highway is well-provisioned. Villages and quirky roadhouses (some with traffic lights and alien sightings!) are spaced every 100 - 150 kilometres, and rest areas every 70-100 kilometres allowing weary cyclists to cower in their shade.

Devil's Marbles sit on the landscape as if they have been dropped from the sky. Marvel at the gorges and the rock art in Nitmiluk NP. The journey to Litchfield NP provides plenty of opportunities for a plunge into crystal clear waterholes beneath the magnificent spring-fed waterfalls of Florence and Wangi.

Then it is on to Darwin, Australia's city of the Top End.

You will love this hot endless journey through the centre of Australia. Link to the Red Centre Way and cycle out to Uluru.
