From a geographic, and scenic perspective, Australia is undoubtedly home to some of the most awe-inspiring natural wonders in the world. A great way to truly explore these treasures is by embarking on road trips to the great Australian outback. So opt for car hire and take off on an enthralling journey.
The Top Four Outback Destinations to Consider
Home to endless skies and scattered clouds, drive to Woomera, a small town located deep in the South Australian Desert. A convenient destination while driving to Central Australia, Andamooka, Adelaide or the Oodnadatta Track, the gorgeous sunsets are just one of the many enchanting things to see here. This region is also home to an open air missile park.
The never ending landscape of the while mullock heaps, that lie below the azure skies, is a feast for all eyes. The magnificent natural beauty that surrounds the opal mining town of White Cliffs includes red earth and a remote, enchanting atmosphere unique only to this outback destination. For a sense of deeper adventure, drive down to the even more remote parts of this region and explore the Paroo –Darling National Park and the Lake Peery.
If one speaks of the Northern Territory’s outback, it is but natural for one to think of Uluru and Central Australia. A few may also consider Standley Chasm and Glen Helen. For the truly adventurous, heading further north-west into the wild zone of the Territory is a chance to acquaint oneself with a relatively untouched world of beautiful red cliffs and amphitheatres. Park your car, walk to the cliffs and enjoy splendid views right over the Victoria River Valley. The Victoria River roadhouse here provides a campground, accommodation, and meals.
In addition to this, it is also worthwhile heading to Windorah, considered to be Outback Queensland. Drive to the iconic Coopers Creek and then drive west to Bedourie where you will be able to catch sight of some of the reddest sand dunes ever. It is spellbinding to watch the fantastic combination of the cobalt skies, the bright green undergrowth, the pretty pink flowers and the striking red hue of the dunes.
