Central Outback Regions of Australia
"The Outback can refer to any 'bush' country away from the major metropolitan centres"
Outback Australia there is nothing like it anywhere!
The Outback can refer to any 'bush' country away from the major metropolitan centres, however the Central Outback refers to those remote ares of Western Queensland and New South Wales, northern South Australia, the Red Centre of course and a large part of Western Australia. It's hot, mostly dusty, remote and extraordinarily enticing with its strange eerieness and silence. Even out here there are great places to stay and relax, even enjoying a meal in view of Uluru at sunset is an experience whether by a campfire or at the 'local' restaurant!
Those who live in the Alice would not seem to want to live anywhere else. The lifestyle is very unique though remote and it is only a short (well out here 200kms IS short) drive to a host of wonderful and unique sights.
Tho mostly dry when the monsoon rains come the whole Queensland Basin and Channel Country comes to life. The Birdsville races and Longreach are just two of a number of enticing attractions that draws thousands every year.
Visit the mining town of Broken Hill.
Ceduna, Port Lincoln, Whyalla. On the edge of the outback these coastal towns and the vast plains of the Eyre Peninsula offer a great holiday opportunity with fishing, camping, sightseeing and the opportunity to see ocean wildlife up close and personal.
