Many visitors to central Australia assume that the inland is flat, arid and lacking vegetation or appeal. When in fact the Outback Way passes through a wide range of landscapes including arid and semi-arid deserts, gorges, breakaways, mountain ranges, grasslands, mallee and mulga covered plains, giant salt lakes, seasonally wet channel country, rivers, creeks, billabongs, hilly woodlands, rolling desert dunes and majestic forests of desert oaks. With this much diversity it is no surprise to find a variety of birds, reptiles and mammals making for an ever-changing view or experience just around the next corner!
The Outback Way passes through 10 of the 85 distinctive bio-geographic regions of Australia. Bioregions are large land areas composed of common characteristics of geology, landform, land-use, vegetation composition and pattern, climate and visual appearance. Distinctive ecosystems in each bioregion influence the variety of organisms that live in each distinctive part of the outback.
