OUTBACK TRAVEL What is the outback? Where does it start? What constitutes an "outback" holiday? These questions and more are answered in OUTBACK's Outback Travel section. The outback is actually anywhere that is different, unique, remote. It can just as readily be in south-west Tasmania or the Blue Mountains as in Central Australia or the Great Sandy Desert. It can be a fishing camp in the Gulf, a fishing lodge on the Great Australian Bight, or a station stay on the Nullarbor Plain. It's all here in Outback Travel, just one of more than 20 regular sections in OUTBACK, The Heart of Australia.
