WIDE OPEN ROAD
When The Triffids released the song ‘Wide Open Road’ in 1986 it immediately became a modern anthem, a rallying cry to get out and lose yourself in the real Australia.
This being a country where a labyrinth of tracks and highways open up in front of the windscreen, just beckoning us to adventures that are both dangerous and life-changing.
The Wide Open Road is a concept that has always driven us, here at the magazine. We live in an environment that draws us ever deeper into its secrets and geographical bounties. It goes against our nature to sleep comfortably at night, knowing that all these places exist, just lying in wait for us to explore…
Thus, in this issue, our man Sean Scott joins the traditional owners on a wild tour through the Dampier Archipelago, the country’s elder 4WDing statesman Dick Eussen presents us with a North Queensland touring guide, and we take a trip across the guts of the Simpson with a family of young explorers.
