Regional and Outback Australia is the home of iconic landscapes, people, towns and settlements.
The spirit of endeavour, acceptance of hardship and close community bonds can be found everywhere and they provide an endless pallet of friendly sun burned faces and unspoilt scenery.
From ancient mountain ranges with their arid beauty, endless plains and stunning natural monuments to places like Ballarat, home to some of the finest examples of colonial architecture and infrastructure in the Country.
Between these two extremes you will find people who live in underground dugouts in Cooper Pedy or on small boats in the Whitsundays.
So grab your camera and go…
“The people are immensely likable— cheerful, extrovert, quick-witted, and unfailingly obliging. Their cities are safe and clean and nearly always built on water. They have a society that is prosperous, well ordered, and instinctively egalitarian. The food is excellent. The beer is cold. The sun nearly always shines. There is coffee on every corner. Life doesn’t get much better than this.”
Bill Bryson, In a Sunburned Country
“Alone of all the races on earth, they seem to be free from the ‘Grass is Greener on the other side of the fence’ syndrome, and roundly proclaim that Australia is, in fact, the other side of that fence.”
