AUSTRALIA'S OUTBACK

Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968) wrote a poem about the Australian outback that every child in Australia learns at school. Above all, the 2nd verse is very well known in Australia and reflects a longing for the outback of Australia:

"I love a sunburnt country, A land of sweeping plains, Of ragged mountain ranges, Of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons, I love her jewel-sea, Her beauty and her terror - The wide brown land for me!"

Most visitors to Australia understand the “Outback” to be the area around Uluru in the Red Center of Australia. However, Australia has so much more to offer in the outback. Many people forget that the outback, which is also called "back of beyond" (in the middle of nowhere), takes up almost 3/4 of the entire area of Australia. It stretches across the Kimberley Region in Western Australia, the vast landscape of the Northern Territory, the Flinders Ranges in South Australia, and even some areas of New South Wales. And another “real outback” begins in the Queensland hinterland ... only very few people know that!
