outback information


- a strange dry land...

70% of the Australian continent is arid - a strange dry land. The Outback contains unique ancient landscapes that are unlike any other on the planet. The Outback is home to an extraordinary fauna, forged by unique climatic events, where lizards are the carnivores and ants the herbivores. Where Marsupials and other remnants of the super-continent Gondwanaland have developed and evolved in isolation over millions of years. The Outback flora is spectacular, plants that have evolved to withstand the arid conditions, many reliant on regular devastation by bush fires. It is a land where there are no averages. One year it will flood, for the next five not a drop of rain will fall. The Australian Outback has a bio-diversity far greater than the verdant eastern seaboard and only a handful of scientists have been studying this living open-air museum and its ecology. In Outback Australia there lives arguably the oldest continuous Aboriginal culture in the world. Contained in this website is a wealth of information. Come and join us on a journey of discovery into the natural history and ecology of this vast, ancient land.
