Introducing Southern Outback
Stretching across to SA via the relentless Nullarbor Plain and up to the Northern Territory (NT), this is the outback Australia that many travellers come to see – a remote, dry land of dramatic landscapes and sprinkles of gold-rush history, with Kalgoorlie-Boulder as its centrepiece. While the red desert landscape might appear barren, the Aboriginal people have lived here for an age. The early colonists found this region hard going – until the prosperity of the gold rush made the harsh landscape no less forgiving, but more rewarding.
