Australia’s last frontier is a wild land of remote, spectacular scenery spread over huge distances, with a severe climate, a sparse population, and minimal infrastructure. Traveling here is a true adventure as you view towering escarpments, undulating woodlands, spectacular waterways, mangrove-covered tidal flats, and forests rich in flora and fauna. Visit important Aboriginal sites and sleepy outposts to learn about life in this unforgiving, yet ultimately beautiful land.
