Australian Outback

Not unlike the deserts in Southwest USA, the Australian Outback is the place to go if you like your nature hot and dry—and if you want to be away from another living soul for hundreds of miles. In fact, the nearest town will be Alice Springs. It’s small, populated by Aboriginal people and is in the middle of nowhere (your entry point to the Outback).

What to see? Uluru (Ayers Rock) of course. And there’s the Olgas (duel rock formations) and Kings Canyon.

More on the outback please. tipsTip: Find a good trekking outfit and go out into the bush for a week or so.
