Australian outback destinations

Experience Australia’s authentic wilderness

In the Australian outback, you can experience the Australian wilderness at its most authentic. For the best experience, travel to the Australian outback during the winter months, between April and October. While the cities are great destinations, a backcountry visit can add just the right amount of edge to your Australian trip.

There are outback destinations all over Australia: you can choose whether a visit to Broome in Western Australia, Longreach in Queensland or Uluru and Alice Springs in the Northern Territory is best for you. Each of these regions has its own unique characteristics and plenty to see and do – whether it be visiting the Qantas Museum, learning about Indigenous history or the history of pastoral culture. All are great experiences.

Broome offers outback experiences in Western Australia

Broome is a coastal town where you can see 22 kilometres of Cable beach and ancient dinosaur footprints in the cliffs at Gantheaume Point. You can also take a guided tour with a group if you wish.

You can spend one of your evenings in the outback taking part in Broome’s most popular excursion: a camel ride to Cable Beach to watch the sunset over the Indian Ocean. From Broome, you can also easily experience the horizontal waterfalls at Talbot Bay.

In Longreach, you can learn about the fascinating history of Qantas airways at its very own museum, the Qantas Founders Museum. Just next door to the museum is another important museum, the Australian Stockman’s Hall of Fame, which honours Australian stockmen. At the museum, you can also learn about the stories of Australia’s indigenous peoples, pastoralists and explorers.

Enjoy wilderness sunsets through river cruises and other authentic outback experiences. You can glide along the Thomson River in an old-world style riverboat and then head out for a traditional campfire dinner. Longreach has a wide range of accommodation options, and you can choose from a cosy glamping tent or a comfortable hotel for your outback getaway.


A couple of hours’ drive from Longreach is the historic town of Winton, where you can discover the story of the famous Waltzing Matilda song in a museum dedicated to it, or tour the town in a traditional horse-drawn carriage. In the area, tourists can also see Australian dinosaur bones and learn about their time in Australia.

Experience the spectacular Uluru and beautiful Alice Springs

Uluru, the world’s largest sandstone monolith, is a major attraction for visitors to Australia. The gateway is the town of Alice Springs. A walking tour around Uluru is a spectacular experience, but there is much more to see in the area. As the sun sets, the starry sky comes into view, and the desert offers a chance to admire the magnificent glow of the Milky Way.

In Uluru, you should explore Aboriginal culture by visiting art galleries and the cultural centre, or learn local crafts such as traditional painting. You can also learn about the traditions of painting.

There are also scenic flights over Uluru, so you can see the whole of this vast red country. If you want to try something new, there are plenty of options. For example, you can ride a camel around Uluru or go on a motorbike or Segway safari.

Activities in Alice Springs

The Alice Springs area also offers a range of activities for visitors, including camel rides in the desert, desert reptiles at the Alice Springs Reptile Centre and injured or orphaned kangaroos at the Kangaroo Wildlife Sanctuary.

A hot air balloon flight in the Alice Springs skies is guaranteed to be an unforgettable experience. There’s no better way to start the day in Uluru than admiring the sunrise and red centre from the air.
