Welcome to the Australian Outback. The purpose of this website is simple. A country as big, flat, beautiful and sparsely populated as Australia is made for touring by air.

Well-known aviation journalist Shelley Ross introduces you to the people and places around this vast country of ours that are way too memorable not to share. The tiny towns, the luxury resorts, the isolated desert communities, massive cattle stations and those hilarious outback pubs - they're all waiting for you to get out here.

If you have your pilot's licence and don't have a clue how to plan an outback trip, you can pick up some tricks here. If you're a student pilot, we'll give you some tips on our Training Adventures page.

So get comfortable and enjoy browsing for ideas and inspiration. These are our favourites, so keep in mind that what we're offering here is not the full menu. Let's just call it the Specials Board.
