The link between Central Australia and Outback Queensland is provided by the Plenty and Donohue Highways. This stretch of road was first built to allow cattle stations a means of transporting beef through road train access. Today, it is also a 'short-cut' for travellers from Boulia, Mt.Isa and other outback Queensland towns to get to Alice Springs and the Red Centre in a more direct way. The Plenty/Donohue highways are a long pathway through open plains, cattle stations and aboriginal communities. Several rivers and creeks which form the channel country need to be crossed through this diversity of country from red sand and clay to bulldust and gravel.

Fourteen stripmaps break the track from Alice Springs to Boulia into identifiable sections giving travellers information on regional roads, fuel, water, landmarks, accommodation, GPS co-ordinates and much more. Each strip is accompanied by photographs of scenes along that section of track.

Also includes enlarged sections of track, track notes, elevations, specific land marks, emergency uhf radio channels, contact details and more!
