The Outback Way - Australia's Third Transnational Route

Freight and Logistics Transformation for the Outback & Australia

Creating a new transport route, the Outback Way is an iconic stretch from Laverton in Western Australia to Winton in Queensland, connecting east coast to west coast Australia, passing through Alice Springs in the Northern Territory.

Currently being sealed, the highway is set to become a thriving corridor of commercial investment and development, creating a bustling network of intermodal hubs and industrial estates.

Developing intermodal hubs, facilities that manage the exchange and storage of shipping containers over longer journeys, will make a new scale of commercial opportunities possible in the Outback and across the nation. This will offer business and investment opportunities in transport, freight, mining, agriculture, tourism, accommodation, roadhouses, environment and clean energy.

Mayor of Boulia (QLD), Rick Britton, a key advocate for this transformative project, remarked, "The Outback Way is not just a road; it's the backbone of economic growth for regional Australia. By developing intermodal hubs in Laverton, Winton, and Alice Springs, we are unlocking the full potential of this vast landscape, fostering commercial opportunities, and improving the quality and liveability of local communities."

The Outback Highway Development Council is hosting the Outback Way Forum 2024 in Canberra to involve participants in developing ways to capitalise on these opportunities.
