Outback experience

Postby Alexandoy » Sun Feb 12, 2017 8:35 am

We have concrete plans of going to Australia early next year. In fact, we have been to the travel expo yesterday for details of itinerary, plane tickets and accommodations. However, we are still not decided on which place in Australia to go. I want an experience in the Outbacks. As I had seen in Discovery Channel and National Geographic, the outback is one unique place to experience the animals. But from what I understand, Australia is a big country and the outback is located only one region. If anyone has knowledge of the Outback, I would be glad to read your comment here.

Where about are you from @Alexandoy?

I would suggest you to start from Perth, the biggest city in Western Australia.

My personal experience is, it's a good starting point where you can get your car and gears well prepared. Having short trips to the cities in Southern-West Australia can help you better prepared for long trip. After that you can drive all the way up (along coast) to Darin. In the trip you will have an excellent exposure to the real outback of Australia... it's going to be the most exciting part of Australia. And from Darwin you will have different routes leading to another amazing trips.

Let me know if you would need more details for your trip ;)

Gee, thanks very much for your reply. I am from the Philippines and we have an airline here that offers discounted plane tickets to Australia every once in a while, it is Cebu Pacific Air. Perth, okay, I will remember that. Actually I still don't know how many airports for destination Cebu Pacific have but in any case, I guess I can travel to Perth from anywhere I land. The trip is for me and my wife so you can guess that it's not really that rugged camping trip. Maybe sleeping in a tent is okay but surely we would be needing a guide for the camping trip.

Thanks again for the reply.

Hi Alexadoy- I agree with @Kaacu but I have another suggestion for you too. You try Tasmania which is one of the best in the category you're looking for. You would love a different experience in Tasmania which is calm and cool despite being one of the most visited states of Australia. Here is something especially for you-
