Stay On Track Outback - Safe Driving Information & Quiz

Driving in the outback, including towing campers and caravans brings with it a whole new set of risks and challenges, particularly for those who are new to outback driving.

We strongly recommend that you visit the Stay on Track Outback website as it has lots of valuable information that you should be aware of before you set out on your trip to Birdsville.

The team from Big Red Bash has worked closely with Queensland Police and their Stay on Track Outback road safety initiative based in Charleville, to help provide resources and information to ensure you are as well prepared as possible for your trip to Birdsville and the Big Red Bash.

We have developed a quiz which will assist you in developing and testing your knowledge about all of the important aspects of safe driving in the outback. It includes videos and links to relevant information to make things easy for you. This will be made available in the lead up to the Bash, and we will be encouraging all drivers to have a crack at it, with some special prizes on offer for those who successfully complete it.

The Queensland Police Stay on Track Outback team will also be in attendance at the Big Red Bash , and located in the REDARC Plaza so feel free to drop by and have a chat to them, they would love to hear about your outback travel experiences.

There will be plenty of traffic around the outback in the period leading up to and after the event, and we want all of you to get to and back home from the Big Red Bash safely, so please ensure you take the time to read and review the information, then take the quiz.

Safe travels, take it easy, look after each other on the road, and we look forward to seeing you all in Birdsville and out at Big Red!.
