Graphic: Outback Car Trek
After it was postponed last year due to COVID, this year’s trek hit the road with all cylinders firing and involved 203 people in 87 vehicles.
Not only do the ‘trekkers’ raise thousands of dollars for bush communities, they also bring more dollars into local economies.
Fundraising activities made a difference in each port of call, as they traversed New South Wales, from West Wyalong to Port Macquarie via Cobar, Broken Hill and Dubbo.

Heavy rain made the roads a muddy challenge
