Outback Australia

Outback Australia

A Walkabout on the Other Red Planet

THE EXPERIENCE

The Australian Outback is known for its unique beauty and exceptional wildlife, but rare are those who explore its raw challenges. Vast, grassy plains teeming with cattle, rivers infested with crocodiles and jagged hills dotted with Aboriginal rock art are just the beginnings of a journey that will redefine your definition of travel. Picture yourself, bathed in tangerine glow, rising above baked red earth and labyrinthine-striped cliffs. Let the millennia of history fill your spirit and soul as tall tales are told around a campfire.

Then, join the adrenaline-filled world of a working cattle farm and enjoy a chance to invest in your cultural future for quite possibly, the most authentic travel experience you have ever had.
