Is the grass always greener on the other side of the fence? Peek over the pickets and find out. This vast country is affluent, multicultural and laced with natural splendour. There is something in the wild lands of the outback that call us in ways we can only partly understand. It happens out on the lonely Carpentaria Hwy or down by the Victoria River near Timber Creek or watching platypus on the Bombala River. It is the possibility that a fabulous sighting of wildlife could happen at any moment. Boiled down to its essence: this is a wild land whose natural and human history are writ large on an impossibly beautiful canvas.
