Everybody knows the Sydney Opera House & Harbour Bridge, Bondi Beach, Uluru, and the Great Barrier Reef.
But there are many other places that are just as magnificent that you’ve probably never heard of or, if you do know them, haven’t thought about visiting.
Places that are seared into the Australian psyche,but which even locals don’t know. Places where you can have truly unique experiences.
Places that are truly iconic.

The Australian outback is not all flat, endless plains. The countryside is constantly changing – rainforest, floodplains (and drought plains), ‘jump up’ country, rivers, deserts, sand dunes, and red dust are some of the things you’ll see. Sometimes all within the space of a day’s drive.
Even the name of the deserts conjures up amazing images The Stony Desert, The Painted Desert, and The Moon Desert are only a few of the deserts that you can travel through in outback Australia.

It’s almost the end of the year, so I guess it’s time to reflect on the year past, and look forward to the new year. What did I do and what would I do differently next year?
I’m not a big one for making New Year’s Resolutions. I believe if you want to change something, or do something different, do it when you think of it. Why wait until a completely arbitrary deadline like the new year?
Also, like most people, I never keep them. I have made the “I’m going to be a better me” resolutions. Lose weight, be nicer, read more books, etc in the past. Blah. Never happens. I’m still the old version of me, and over the years I’ve grown to like it.
