Our Australian Outback Tours and Vacations

What is the Outback exactly? A good definition might be a vast remote area with wide open spaces where urban areas don’t exist and something totally unique on an Australia vacation. This covers a large portion of Australia obviously. The Outback covers a huge amount of Australia and is basically the countryside and remote areas located hours away from big city life. However, there are many cities that are close by and make good starting points for interesting areas of the Outback on trips to Australia.

The Outback Environment

The Outback is not by any means all desert, although this does take up a certain amount of territory. But even in the desert, one will come across vegetation and waterholes. Wildlife has also adapted to the more remote parts. Kangaroos, dingoes, emus, wild horses and wild camels can frequently be seen.

Australian Outback Travel Highlights

What does the Outback offer the traveller on Australian tours? The ability to explore, of course! This can be done either on a self-drive arrangement or on an organized tour. A few of the better known areas which constitute a part of the Outback are Alice Springs, Kakadu National Park and Ayers Rock in the Northern Territories, Broken Hill in New South Wales, Broome in Western Australia and Flinders Range in Queensland which give you an idea geographically just what is the Australian Outback.

And in a country as large as Australia there is much to discover, and what better way to do this than on one of our Outback tours. C’mon say G’day Downunder. Book one of our Australia vacations today and start exploring!
