"Don't leave the highway" Alice Springs Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Kate-Me

Alice Springs Warnings and Dangers: 11 reviews and 18 photos

If you're travelling by car through the outback, don't stray from the main roads (or road - often there is only one). If you should break down, it's vital that you don't leave your car and try to walk for help.

Many people in the past have tried this, set off unprepared, and met with disaster, running out of water in the middle of the desert and out of time to be found....

It really is much better if you stay with your vehicle and try to keep cool. A car is much easier to spot by air search party than people....

Hopefully though this will never happen.
