Trekking and mountaineering
Weather conditions may be dry during the summer. You should be prepared for hot weather.
If you intend on trekking or mountaineering:
- never do so alone and always hire an experienced guide from a reputable company
- buy travel insurance that includes helicopter rescue and medical evacuation
- ensure that your physical condition is good enough to meet the challenges of your activity
- ensure that you’re properly equipped and well informed about weather and other conditions that may pose a hazard
- inform a family member or friend of your itinerary, including when you expect to be back to camp
- obtain detailed information on trekking routes before setting out and do not venture off marked trails or slopes
Some regions in Australia’s interior are very isolated and have small populations. Services are scarce.
You may have difficulty getting adequate mobile phone coverage if you travel there by car.
- Avoid travelling alone
- Inform relatives of your itinerary
Road conditions and road safety are very good throughout the country. Exercise caution when driving in rural areas at night. Drivers often drive at excessive speeds. Roaming animals and road trains pose further hazards.
Access to some remote locations may be impossible during severe weather conditions. Due to the great distances between settlements and the isolation of many outback areas:
- avoid travelling in extreme heat conditions
- plan your overland route carefully
- provide a friend or relative with your itinerary, and ensure that your vehicle is in good repair
- carry a first-aid kit and personal medication
- carry sufficient fuel, water, and food supplies
- bring a satellite phone or an emergency position indicating radio beacon (EPIRB)
