The Australian Outback – it's one of those mystical, legendary places, heavy with folklore and otherworldly sights.

The most famous of them all would have to be Ayers Rock (Uluru). It is truly magical and something to be seen to be believed. To truly appreciate the color and scale of Uluru, take to the skies with a helicopter flight over Uluru and Kata Tjuta (aka the Olgas) – to see these incredible rock formations within the red desert is an unforgettable sight. Then, to get the back story, take a walk around the rock with an Aboriginal guide – the poetic stories will blow your mind.

Alice Springs, the township bang in the middle of Australia, can give you a lesson in what it's like to live in such a remote town – glimpsing the buildings of the Royal Flying Doctor Service and the School of the Air brings home its isolation. But with that isolation comes some fabulously rugged scenery, so why not roll with it and rip up the dust on a quad bike at Undoolya Station, the oldest working cattle station in the Northern Territory? There's bush tracks, dry riverbeds and mountain ranges. 

Then there's Darwin, the capital of northern Australia. It's closer to Jakarta than it is to Sydney, and closer to Singapore than it is to Melbourne, so it should come as no surprise that it looks outward to Asia as much as it looks inland to the rest of Australia.

This proximity and familiarity with Australia's northern neighbors is reflected in Darwin's relaxed, cosmopolitan, tropical atmosphere. Think amazing wildlife, sunset markets, waterside dining and Kakadu - Australia's largest national park. Over 20,000 square kilometers of lush floodplains, swampy tidal flats, monsoon forests and a bounty of Aboriginal cave paintings and rock carvings.
