Outback Roads

Stock Photography By David C Hancock

What passes for a road in various parts of Australia can be nothing more than a graded track. However, these roads are highly important and heavily used by local people and are usually very well maintained. In the north, the wet season can wash out roads but they reappear in the dry. Many Outback roads are important economic connectors - particularly for the cattle industry, and Aboriginal people who travel frequently for ceremonies and family reasons.
