Located in Queensland, Australia, the Diamantina Developmental Road is a very exciting journey, taking in every kind of terrain, landscape and vista that Australia has to offer. It’s one of the Australian longest roads.
The road is 1.344 km (835 mi) long and links Charleville (south-central part of the state) and Mount Isa (north-west). It’s a very exciting adventure. The whole journey is mostly on a sealed road which can be driven along by all vehicle types. The road crosses several well known rivers and creeks. River crossings are always at risk in extreme weather situations. Weather conditions will change substantially from start to finish. Carry lots of water and fuel with you. There can be animals on the road. The journey requires planning and careful preparation. Driving at night is best avoided. Mobile phone coverage along the route is varied.
