Exploring The Australian Outback

Exploring The Australian Outback

The Australian Outback is a place like no other. Met with challenging, wild terrain, it’s a chance to see nature at it’s best; rugged mountains, mind blowing geological formations and animals that exist nowhere else in the world. If you’re sick of the same old tourist resorts and want to visit somewhere off the beaten path,

 

Go on Camel Expedition

A camel expedition offers an extreme desert adventure. You can discover indigenous habitation sites and experience remote desert bushwalking, see the complex ecology and just enjoy being out in the wilderness away from the stress and pressures of society. If you’re really looking to ‘find yourself’ and discover who you are, something like this is a great way to go about it. You can book camel treks for one to ten days depending on how extreme you want to go. Either way, it’s the experience of a lifetime, can change your perspective on the world and something you will remember forever.

 

View Stunning Gorges and Waterfalls

The natural formations in the outback are incredible sights to behold, and the waterfalls and gorges are of particular interest. The Kimberley region of the outback has a range of beautiful ones, you could book a tour to see Kimberley gorges while you’re on your visit. This involves four days exploring different areas of the outback, where you can see Geikie Gorge, Tunnel Creek, Windjana Gorge, Bell Gorge waterfalls and more.

 

Visit The National Parks

There are a huge range of national parks in Australia. Some are more popular with tourists, others are used more by the locals. In the outback, one incredible park worth visiting is Purnululu National Park, also known as The Bungle Bungle or just Bungles. The orange and black striped domes which dominate the landscape are one of Australia's most unique and fascinating land formations. You can go camping, go on various walks, photograph nature and wildlife before watching the sunset at Walanginjdji Sunset Lookout.

 

Hike The Larapinta Trail

Want a spectacular bushwalking experience? The Larampinta Trail is almost a hundred and forty miles long and offers views of some of Australia’s most fascinating attractions: Ellery Gorge, Serpentine Chalet Dam, Standley Chasm and Mount Sonder to name a few. While this is becoming a popular tourist trail, with anywhere in the outback you don’t need to worry about it being too busy or ‘touristy’. You can walk for a day or commit to multiple days depending on the kind of challenge you want and your fitness levels. There are certain equipment and safety advice you need to bear in mind when undertaking something like this, so be sure to do thorough research. Due to the varied terrain, heat, wind, loose gravel and slippery rock over water crossings you need to be fully prepared. As there’s not many places to refill water, knowing how much to bring (and what you can realistically carry) is another consideration.
