Self Drive

Easily the most common choice for travellers, is the self-drive option which allows visitors more flexibility and accessibility to see all the attractions and experiences the Outback has to offer.  

Richmond does not have car hire options, however larger towns or cities nearby (such as Townsville, Mount Isa or Longreach) do have options if you are looking at travelling further into Outback Queensland.
