Just the name, outback' immediately conjures emotive recollections of Australia's vast, sparsely populated area. It is the region beyond the 'bush' - a place of slightly more population and vegetation, closer to regional centres.
To many, it is just a lot of homogenous emptiness, but it is diverse. In Western Australia, the outback extends to the coast, and similar to northern Queensland.
For those on the southeastern seaboard, it can be reached northwest of the Darling River, Australia's most iconic waterway that diagonally bisects the state of New South Wales. It is no surprise that it is called the accessible outback within a day's drive of Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne, and only half a day from Adelaide.
Over the last decade-plus, this outback region, in addition to the Murray-Darling basin, has been my favoured place to photograph, and the following are some of my most recent favourites.
It is a beautiful opportunity for a professional photographer, to visit, experience, and photograph parts of Outback Australia then produce Australian photography prints focusing on the outback!
I hope you enjoy the gallery!
