Greening the Outback Tour (11 days)


NATURETOURISMCERTnewI last arranged a greening of the outback tour back in 2009 when widespread rain fell across inland Australia. Now, in 2019, we have had two flood events travel through the Channel Country and a little rain to add to the water table. The result is some of this land, which was in drought for 7 years, is seeing its first pastures for a long time. Events like this occur about every 10 years, where will you be in ten years time? So why wouldn't I offer you the opportunity to see the outback at its glorious best. There will be vast areas of lush green growth in our desert country, some areas will still be in drought but the thing that excites me the most is the prospect of seeing fields of wild flowers as nature takes its course. Add to this the prospect of lots and lots of birdlife given every waterhole in the Channel Country will be full of water and fish, but like the TV add says, wait, there is more. The opportunity to see Lake Eyre, which the experts say has as much water as the great flood of 1974, makes it almost irresistible to take a few days out of your busy life and see this phenomenal natural event first hand.
