Australia is a very inspiring country for adventurous hearts.

Recently, the indigenous Aboriginal culture has achieved a worldwide recognition. Aboriginal arts, crafts and customs are in the forefront of the Australian picture.
Finally, the native wildlife cannot be experienced anywhere in the world, except in this vast continent. So why not to explore all of it? There are plenty providers of adventure travel in Australia. The most popular are the "outback Australia" tours. Some of the most common types of adventure Australia offers are:
