In the Outback, time can sometimes seem to move slower, but its rich history has been fast paced and action packed. Great herds of dinosaurs ruled the interior in the murky depths of prehistory. Aboriginal culture leaves its mark on Queensland’s vast interior to this day with beautiful rock art and the rich oral tradition of the land’s traditional custodians being passed down from generation-to-generation to this day.
If you’re lucky, they might share their stories with you. This part of Australia is also tied tightly to the romance, myth and legend of the country’s frontier years when it was still finding its feet as a fledgling nation not far removed from the original European settlement of convicts and guards.
