Outback Australia Can Be Expensive. We’ll Show You How to Make it Easy and Affordable.
If you want to travel the Australian outback, you’re in the right place.
If you think it’s beyond your budget or skills to see the outback, you’re also in the right place.
We’re Gary and Amanda.
We’re real outback locals who live and work in Alice Springs, the heart of outback Australia.
On Travel Outback Australia, we’ll share everything we know to help you see the outback just like a local in simple, easy-to-follow steps.
Our mission is to show you that the outback is within your reach – whether you’re an Aussie family or from another country.
You’ll learn insider tips like how to find accommodation at Uluru/Ayers Rock for as little as $25 per night, or how to find meals from as little as $6.
We’ll also share information that you simply won’t find elsewhere: like free camping places, little-known national parks and how to experience Aboriginal culture firsthand.
We’ve put all this together in what we think is the ULTIMATE travel guide to the outback.
Ultimate Travel Guides
Want more than the travel guide book’s ‘Cliff Notes’ on places like Alice Springs, Uluru, Coober Pedy and Kings Canyon?
Sick of ‘travel secrets’ websites that just regurgitate what you can find everywhere else on the web?
Then we’ve developed ‘ULTIMATE GUIDES‘ to all of the most popular outback destinations written from a local’s point of view, with all the tips, tricks and honest opinions you’d expect from real insiders.
Not Just Big Red Rocks
Sure… everyone has heard of Uluru, Kings Canyon, Coober Pedy and Alice Springs. And yes, you’ll find loads of insider information about these places here.
But what about a shady waterhole with free camping that most travellers speed right past?
Or tips and tricks for visiting Australia’s largest lake?
And of course, those famous outback rocks and what their REAL meaning is for Aboriginal people.
Too Dangerous? We make it SAFE and EASY
Some of our travel safety tips might seem deceptively simple. In fact, we’ll probably have to ask you ‘old pros’ for a bit of patience!
Our tips about safe travel in the outback might be information that old hands already know, however many travellers don’t know this stuff and besides, it never hurts any of us to take a little “refresher course” once in a while.
