The Australian Outback is a place of legends, mystery and magic. A landscape that has borne witness to some of the earliest human activity; looking across the plains of the Outback is like looking back in time. But how can we truly understand the significance of these arid lands? How can we educate ourselves on the history, the beauty and the geology of this mesmerising part of the world?
As you might have guessed, we’ve managed to find an experience that enables people to do all of these things and more, so let us introduce you to Earth Sanctuary’s Spirit of the Outback Dinner & Show. An award-winning event, The Spirit of the Outback incorporates good food, a stunning setting and informative guides to provide an incredibly unique Outback experience.
From the moment you arrive and are handed a glass of champagne, you’ll realise that this is a celebration. A celebration of the wonders of the Outback. It’s not a bad way to start, and soon you’ll settle down to a three-course gourmet meal. Then, as you dine, you’ll listen to the stories and presentations of enthusiastic guides and end up enchanted by the colourful horizon as the sun sets to reveal a blanket of stars. Far from light pollution and big cities, here you’ll be able to truly appreciate the beauty of the night sky as you’re given a detailed lesson in astrology. Sounds idyllic, right?
As you can imagine, this is all so much more immersive than a wander through a museum or an art gallery. Here you are confronted head-on with the mesmerising beauty, enormity and antiquity of the area. You’ll learn about the aboriginal cultures that know the Outback so well. You’ll look into a sky of a million stars and learn to spot constellations and planets. You’ll feast on traditional cuisine straight from burning fires.
Experience all of this and you may finally comprehend the true spirit of the Outback. And surely, that’s all you could ever want from a trip to the beating heart of Australia?
