A couple months ago, my #1 road trip buddy Marijs and I made the long drive from Sydney to Broken Hill and got to experience the Outback of New South Wales.
Coober Pedy is probably the most well-known (read: touristy) mining town in Australia, but if there’s anything I learned on my recent road trip through Outback New South Wales, it’s that this country’s got plenty of other mining towns.
I knew very little about Broken Hill before being sent off on an adventure to this Outback town. In fact, I think the extent of my knowledge was that it was located in bumblef*ck New South Wales.
Exactly one month ago, I was whisked away from civilization, jostled around on bumpy dirt roads in a 4×4, and escorted to my new home in a ‘luxury tent’ at El Questro Wilderness Park.
In April of 2006, I took one of those trips that leaves you with mental images and memories permanently etched in your mind. I traversed the Australian Outback, from Adelaide northward to Darwin, in 10 days.
For the inaugural Flashback Friday post, I think it’s only right to feature the place that still tugs at my heartstrings: Australia (more specifically: Kata Tjuta).
I spent most of 2006 living, studying, and traveling in Australia.
