The Outback 

“The Outback doesn’t refer to desert, the Outback isn’t a place on a map; it’s a place in the heart. It’s an attitude, how to treat people, a way of behaving. It’s a belief system where life is simpler, less complicated and more ‘Fair Dinkum’. Far North Queensland was populated only due to the mineralisation discovered in the late 1800’s. With the decline of this resource, these towns have all but disappeared leaving nothing but a graveyard of history and the Outback.”

When to visit: Every time of the year displays the diversity of the Australian Outback. Mid-year (June/July) is our green season after the completion of the wet season (January/February). In stark contrast to the dry season (October/November) that has its own charm with spectacular sunsets. It would be shame not to experience the many contrasts of both nature and human involvment.



You will be well looked after while experiencing unique outback Characters and breathtaking sights. Perentie Tours are in no way ‘Touristy’ but rather a genuine look at life in the Outback.
