Project Description

Adventure Way, in outback South Australia, has regular heavy vehicle use from the mining and agricultural sectors, and is a tourist route to outback towns such as Innamincka. This project involves sealing 26km of Adventure Way from the South Australia/Queensland border and 2.5km of the adjoining Strzelecki Track to provide continuous sealed access to Innamincka Airport. This will improve accessibility to outback South Australia for tourism, agriculture and the mining industry.


Benefits include:

  • Improved road safety for all road users
  • Improved connectivity between people with jobs and services, and goods with markets
  • Improved accessibility to the nearby Innamincka Airport


The Australian Government has committed $4.8 million and the South Australian Government has committed $1.2 million towards this $6.0 million project.


Construction of this project is commenced in mid 2020 and is expected to be completed by late 2020.
