Nature and Outback

Nothing says Australia quite like our Outback. Australia has some of the world's most distinctive and diverse natural environments, with unique wildlife and spectacular landscapes, including many national parks and World Heritage Areas.

Australia is one of the leading providers of nature-based tourism, with a diverse range of ecosystems, landscapes and wildlife, many of which are found nowhere else in the world. The country plays host to thousands of national parks and conservation reserves in Australia, and twenty UNESCO World Heritage listed attractions, including the Great Barrier Reef and Uluru.

Tourism Australia's own research consistently shows Australia as holding the number one global ranking for its world-class nature experiences; outperforming the likes of Switzerland, New Zealand and Canada.

There were 35.8 million visitors to regional Australia in 2016 who engaged in nature and wildlife tourism activities (Source: Tourism Research Australia).

Be inspired by the open spaces that seem to stretch on forever and tell the story of the exploration and development of our wide brown land. Investors can find a little bit of the outback in every state of Australia, and while the regions are remote, they can be easily accessed from most major cities and towns.
