It's not just kangaroos, koalas, and bats: Australia's Outback is full of wondrous, hidden beauty. Its vast landscapes are made up of different types of terrains that result in a beautiful countryside.

When people think about Australia, they immediately picture kangaroos and the Sydney Opera House, and that's because if you’ve never been there, you might not know about the beauty that is Australia’s Outback, which makes up almost the entire continent. It is vast and full of a history unknown to many. Here are 16 pictures that will make you fall in love with the Outback, Australia’s heartland. 

The Outback refers to a dry and remote region that stretches over 2.5 million square miles, which is almost the entire continent. Needless to say, this region is sparsely populated. It is divided into 2 arid zones: one with cold winters in the middle, and one with a mild winter in the north. During the day, temperatures are pretty warm, but they do get milder further south.

It contains a vast and unique history made up of ancient indigenous cultures. Aborigines have lived in Australia for an estimated 50,000 years. While in other parts of the world, people were building  pyramids, great walls, and other monumental structures, the Aborigines were happy to roam around the plains, sleeping under trees, and making shelters out of tree branches and palm leaves for when it rained. 

If you make it to the Outback, you will encounter beautiful landscapes and wildlife native to this ecosystem, such as kangaroos, koalas, more lizards than in any other country in the world, and over 800 species of birds. Also, one of the world’s oldest living cultures will share their music, dance, and art with you.
