Description

Spreading across several Australian states, the Outback is, in a word, vast. We're talking seriously big. If you want to drive out here, bring your own water for days and extra fuel. Understandably, most people fly in. (For the journey of a lifetime, take the two-night Ghan train from Adelaide through Alice Springs to Darwin.) As one of the most mystical sights in the world, Uluru (Ayers Rock) is truly spectacular. The red rock, a solitary remnant from a long-gone mountain chain, plays a large part in the mythology of the local Aborigine people. Take a tour with a local and find out the history of this sacred place. The nearby town of Alice Springs is the tourist hub for the Outback with an airport, several nature centers, restaurants and a selection of Aboriginal art galleries. Take a detour to the opal mining town of Coober Pedy, where the incessant heat drove residents to create an underground city. Stay in a cave hotel, tour the underground Catholic and Serbian Orthodox churches and buy a few opals.
