Greening the Outback Tour (12 days)


NATURETOURISMCERTnewIn March 2021 flooding rains swept across almost all of Australia. Whilst the east coast saw some of its worst flooding in more than 50 years, the parched outback received over 100mm of rain also. Our beautiful outback deserts respond beautifully to rain, and in no time a vibrant green landscape strikes a huge contrast with the red sands of the desert interior. And then the wildflowers burst forth in their millions. When these events combine the result can be one of the most beautiful and stunning outcomes you can witness in our country. This trip is designed to take advantage of that very situation and give you the opportunity to see and experience this incredible natural phenomena firsthand.
