The Australian Outback

The Australian outback is a wild landscape of endless beauty and adventure, ranging from arid desert plains to cascading waterfalls and amazing ancient geological formations. Outback Australia is an unforgettable experience however you choose to see it, be it a 4WD camping safari or with all the creature comforts of a deluxe resort.

Renowned for its spectacular natural attractions (and not much else!) the Australian outback stretched from central and far north Queensland across to the Top End  and Red Centre of the Northern Territory to the remote Kimberly region of Western Australia. Throughout these states you’ll find some of the most diverse and enduring natural habitats in the world.

Located in southern central Queensland, the Carnarvon Gorge is a steep sandstone chasm in the Carnarvon National Park home to lush tropical rainforest, native wildlife, ancient Aboriginal art and 25km of graded walking tracks including the Scenic Track, Cathedral Caves and Sandy Beach Nature Trail.

Further up in North Queensland, the Undara Lava Tubes are an amazing ancient monument of natural underground channels where lava once flowed after a volcanic eruption. Part of the Undara Volcanic National Park, these volcanic phenomenons are also surrounded by the Kalkani Crater and a number of walking trails and tours.

Just over the border in the Northern Territory is where you’ll find the ultimate outback experience. The remote terrain can be harsh but is also breathtakingly beautiful and speaks of a rich heritage, ancient culture and some of the most unique natural environments on the planet. The Top End is full of vibrant tropical flora and is home to the amazing ecosystems of the Kakadu National Park while in the Red Centre, you’ll find some of the county’s most iconic attractions including Ayers Rock (Uluru).

Head to the north west in Western Australia and the Kimberly region opens up an extraordinary contrast of colour and grandeur in one of the last great wilderness areas in the world. The 420,000km of the Kimberly is characterised by unspoilt beaches, picture perfect rock pools, ancient geological formations and gorges and almost endless horizons. The Australian outback creates memories to last a lifetime.
