What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

The scale of the outback wilderness is difficult for modern urbanites to comprehend. With mile after mile of undisturbed natural beauty, it really is just you and a lazy crocodile or two, staring at the sun glinting off the serene scenery. You can fly in and out in minutes, but we recommend spending time travelling overland. Hour after hour of nature, with nowhere to be but here and now, is truly liberating.
