The Outback Travel Guide

From Arnhem Land in the east—home to remote Aborigines—to the lush tropical city of Darwin and on to Broome in the west, the Top End is a region where individualistic people carve out their lives in what could be considered the real Australia. The region offers some of the most dramatic landscapes in Australia: a land of rugged ranges, tropical wetlands, and desert, of vast cattle stations and wonderful national parks, including the bizarre, beautiful, red-and-black-stripe sandstone domes and towers of Purnululu National Park and Kakadu National Park, a wilderness area that is one of Australia's natural jewels and the reason many people come to the Top End.
