Suzi Love is visiting the lovely Dames of Dialogue and talking about the outback of Australia.
We’d love you to drop by for a visit and tell us what you think of outback Australia.
Would you like to visit our Australian outback?
In the outback, distances are vast and the area in my state alone is the size of several small European countries.
The outback is a mixture of gulf wetlands and waterholes, red desert and sand dunes, pockets of lush grasslands, and enormous cattle stations. These stations truck cattle to market by road trains, semi trailers pulling one, two, or three trailers, or dogs.
These road trains take up the full width of most outback roads so travelers learn quickly to get off onto the side of the road when you see a large cloud of dust coming towards you, because chances are it’s a road train and the driver is hurrying to get the cattle to shipping ports or to saleyards and abattoirs.
