With more wide open space than people, it is easy to see why Australians have a friendly way about them. The diversity of the landscape keeps things interesting, from the country’s iconic Outback to its coastal country. The Outback is a vast desert that occupies Australia’s interior and is characterized by red soil, big skies, and steep gorges. The wildlife in the Outback is strange and fascinating, all thorny devils, bearded dragons, and desert dingoes. Most of the country’s residents live no further than 20 kilometers off the coast, where beautiful beaches are a surfer’s paradise, to be enjoyed all 300 sunny days of the year. There is plenty to explore, making the region a destination well-worth the long trip. Rent a luxury yurt or glass cabin to keep the spectacular views in sight through the end of your perfectly sunny day in Australia.
