We grow up with fables and folklore of the remotest regions of Australia and yet experiencing them first hand is still something of a rite of passage for all of us.
While the movies, documentaries, travel stories and books do a reasonable job of capturing the diverse beauty and awe-inspiring vastness of these regions, there is nothing like sitting on a boat cruising the sandstone amphitheatre of Katherine Gorge surrounded by ancient Aboriginal rock art, being humbled by the magnificent tingle trees as you walk through the canopy in Western Australia’s Valley of the Giants or connecting with our indigenous culture with interactive experiences like dining on genuine bush tucker you helped procure.
The stirring, soulful joy of physically connecting with this vast frontier is something you’ll never forget.
And when you’ve done it, it’s likely you’ll feel you understand your country in a new way; feel something more of what it means to be Australian.
Undoubtedly, guided holidays in the hands of experts is the best way to make the most of visiting these amazing places.
