The Outback is a place scorched by sun, where the stars shine brighter than anywhere in the world, and your nearest neighbour could be hundreds of kilometres away. And of course the world-famous Uluru (Ayres Rock) sits proudly in the centre of the country. For those looking for a rugged experience away from it all in rural Australia, life in the Outback is where it’s at. Watch Crocodile Dundee again if you don’t believe me.
Tasmania – “Tassie” to the locals – is known for its rugged scenery, fabulous foodie scene and welcoming locals. A cooler climate than the rest of Australia makes it popular with British expats keen to avoid the full-on heat of somewhere like Perth, while still benefiting from mild winters, longer summers and that laid-back Australian charm.
