The Outback has no official definition, yet you know when you’re there. It radiates from the heart of the country in the Northern Territory, stretching outwards, encompassing a vast swathe of land. Picture the Outback in your mind and you’ll see shades of ochre, rust and vibrant red, an arid dusty land. Yet within its fold and undulations there are unexpected rock pools and canyons, waterfalls that tumble into refreshing pools, rivers and gorges that snake through cliffs painted in the colours of nature.

There’s something about the diverse landscape that blankets the Northern Territory, from the Red Centre to Arnhem Land and Kakadu to the Cobourg Peninsula. Take in the ancient aboriginal culture, admire the abundant wildlife and spectacular natural wonders that linger under cobalt skies that turn from blue to pastel pink, sunburnt orange and deep crimson to signal day’s end. At night, inky black skies are liberally sprinkled with stars that glitter like fairy dust. Inhale deeply and connect to the land. It’s time to explore the beauty of the north.
