With few roads and no rails, transporting goods across the Australian outback ? over two million square miles of untamed wilderness ? is close to impossible.

From roads washed away by floods to 50 degree heat, and raging cyclones to truck-tipping anthills, we?ll buckle up and follow the battle-tested drivers of these road trains as they deal with the toughest conditions on earth.
