4WD Road Restrictions & Permissions


Driving Britz 4WDs on unsealed roads through Australia’s Outback can be super fun and thrilling but turn onto the wrong tracks it can get both difficult and dangerous. We value your well-being and want to protect your safety, so Britz limits some of the unsealed roads you can travel on based on weather and track conditions.

We will advise you on pick-up of any travel restrictions at that time and our local staff will also be able to give you customized recommendations on where to go with your selected 4WD vehicle. When driving cautiously you will have a safe and carefree 4WD journey through the best of the Australian Outback.
