Camping in the outback
I have just returned from a holiday in the outback with a group of friends. We flew from Brisbane to Alice Springs and then drove to Ayers Rock and Kings Canyon, then flew to Darwin and then drove from Darwin to Broome via Katherine.
But after coming back I realised it was all too commercial - full of tourists, cars, planes etc. and have always wondered what it is like to spend a couple of months in the outback alone.
I want to come back here and explore the Kimberley region where I can pitch a tent, have a couple of beers while I write my journal...that kinda thing, or am I just crazy in thinking like this??
I want to ask if you explored the outback by yourself, if so, did you enjoy it? Would you recommend doing it? And what are the options to travel around the outback for someone like me who is on a tight budget?
I did read your Budget Travel section but I'm kinda not willing to buy a car and travel around in Australia.
Looking forward to your response
