Discover The Outback On Your Next Australia Tour

May 24, 2008
The Outback is a region of great beauty and grandeur that will leave you lasting images of Australias intense landscape. Although the word Outback in native dialect is considered really any area that is far away from urban areas. Outback is generally referring to locations more remote than an area called the bush which generally refers to any rural or undeveloped land or area.

In the province of New South Wales, the Outback features the Darling River which flows over 1700 miles making it the longest river in Australia. It is also considered the lifeblood for much of the wildlife even though it has run dry over 45 times and has a high salt content due to systemic droughts. It was also considered the greatest inland mode of travel from Brewarrina to Wentworth.

The outback in Australias Northern Territory is home to the Kakadu National Park and the Uluru/Ayers Rock. Aboriginal people share their 40,000 year old story with rock drawings and canvas. There are more than 5000 recorded art sites that depict Aboriginal culture over thousands of years.

The NT has very diverse and often contrasting environments along with intriguing and spectacular wildlife as you go from the deserts of Central Australia to the tropics of the Top End. You can expect an assortment of unique Australian pubs, amazing characters and enduring landscapes. Here you will find a number of colorful and down to earth characters that insist upon sharing a tale or two.

Many folks take the Ghan Train ride which allows travelers to enjoy the changing landscapes from the red desert of the outback to the tropical top end in the north. You can even take a camel ride through parts of the desert.

The Great Western Woodlands is the largest temperate woodland left on Earth. By sheer remoteness, this piece of land has mostly escaped the impact of industrialization and maintains a nearly preserved ecosystem. The vastness of the woodlands has assured that the hydrological patterns of thousands of years ago still operate and animal migrations are uninhibited. The plant life has as a metered impact on cloud formation.

The area contains a diversity of vegetation communities with islands of granite rock and natural salt lakes mixed in the sixteen million hectares of land. The woodlands is cut off by the world famous Rabbit Proof Fence to prevent human meddling represents 2 percent of Australias land mass. 20 percent of all known plant species indigenous to Australia are represented in the Great Western Woodlands. Nowhere else in the world are such volumes of Eucalytis trees found in such a profoundly dry climate.
