Australia has many stereotypes applied to it, sometimes by its people, but the reality is different. It is a country where some of the world’s oldest cultures share vast ochre desert plains, tropical forests, smart cities and amazingly blue waters with successive waves of arrivals from across the globe, in essence, it is a melting pot of culture and tradition. There’s an old Australian expression ‘Go Bush’, it means to leave the city for a break and relax. The typical stereotype of the urban Australian is of someone who likes nothing better than an early morning run and bracing surf to start and end the day. However, move away from the great urban centres of Sydney and Melbourne, and you discover an antidote to the fast-paced urban Australian lifestyle with national parks, such as Purnululu and Kakadu, providing a vast supply of emotional isolation. From the penguins, vineyards and beach reserves of the south to aboriginal art etched over ancient rocks in the Northern Territory, no trip to Australia would be complete without letting yourself, and your imagination run wild.
