Australien Teil 1: outback
Pushin ever westward, across the great divide
Beyond the darling river, towards the outback sky
The lawless and the brave, searching for a dream
When all they found was sand and stone, where rivers once had been
(Jimmy Barnes – the last frontier)
Australia’s last frontier is a wild land of remote, spectacular scenery spread over huge distances, with a servere climat, a sparse population and minimal infrastructure. Larger than 75% of the world’s countries, the Kimberley is hemmed by impenetrable coastline and unforgiving deserts. In between lie vast boab-studded spinifex plains, palm-fringed gorges, desolate mountains and magnificent waterfalls.
