"The Outback isn't a place on a map; it's a place in your heart"



I think that just about sums it up nicely.

Never liked the term "outback" just seems like the place overseas tourists go

ive been to the goldfields, the murchasin, the gascoyne, the pilbarra and the kimberly

never been to the outback-wherever that is

Adele.

Your right there. In the lyrics of the song "I've been everywhere man" It's not mentioned. Is it far from Back of Burke?

Perhaps this might help to explane it.

Have you been searching for the Australian Outback and struggling to find it?

It’s probably because you’ve been looking in the wrong places.

Where Isn't the Outback?

Where Is It? To answer this, one really needs to understand where the outback isn’t. Here are a few examples of where it cannot be found.

Alice Springs, Bendigo, Charters Towers, Dubbo, Emerald, Fitzroy Crossing, Goondiwindi, Hay, Ivanhoe, Jondaryan, Kalgoorlie, Lightning Ridge, Mt Isa, Nyngan, Oodnadatta, Pine Creek, Quilpie, Roxby Downs, Sandstone, Tamworth, Umbakumba, Varley, Warra, Xantippe, Yulara, or Zeehan.

All of these places have had claims made about them that they are either in the outback or that they are the ‘heart’ or the ‘gateway’ or the ‘centre’ of the Outback.

Not that the outback can’t be located from any of these great places. Each and every town on this list is an interesting place and worth touring and visiting on its own merits and you may know many of the names by reputation. The outback is simply not in a location where people reside in groups, where buildings and roads converge and where business and shops trade. These places are just pointers towards the outback, designed and erected to give the tourist or traveller an indication that they may be vaguely close to stumbling across what they are looking for.

It is truely in the Heart.....

It may not be a place but you'll know when you get there as total strangers will wave to you :-)
