Interviews with those who made and are the Outback
"Welcome to this personal 12,000 kilometre adventure through the legend that
is Outback Australia."
THE FIRST LEG
Through The Red Heart Through a town where people live underground
To a river touched by destiny
Beyond the driest desert
To spies in the simmering heart.
Up the longest, loneliest road
Across the Tropic of Capricorn
To the watering holes of drovers
And the junction of War and heat.
THE SECOND LEG
Into The Kimberley Into Western Australia
Three times bigger than Texas
Past mystical boulders on history's shoulders
Where crocodiles swing from trees.
To the Mother of Pearl and dinosaurs
By the sigh of the Indian Ocean
Through mammoth schemes and ancient dreams
To the soul of the Kimberley.
Gibb River Road
Mt. Elizabeth Station
THE THIRD LEG
To The Top End Across the rusty northern edge
Where drought toys with tropical rain
In the footsteps of heroes and the whispers of time
On the spine of giant legend.
To the far Far North
With names carved in mud
Through the sweat and blood of a wild frontier
To the gem that is the Top End.
