The Outback Feature
Top Reasons to Go to the Outback
Beach Heaven: Some of Australia's finest beaches are in Western Australia. Hundreds of kilometers of virtually deserted sandy coves and bays invite you to swim, surf, snorkel, or laze about.
National Parks: With spectacular terrain and one-of-a-kind plant and animal species, rugged national parks tell the story of Australia's ancient landforms, especially across the Top End and Kimberley regions.
Old Culture: The Red Centre, Top End, and the Kimberley are the best places to experience one of the oldest cultures in the world, that of Australia's Aborigines.
Top End Cooking: Innovative chefs blend immigrant Asian and European flavors with local produce to create distinctive plates.
Wine Trails: Follow the wine trails from Perth to the south coast to enjoy free tastings of internationally renowned wines at the cellar doors.
