Australia’s six states and two territories have each developed their own personalities and defining characteristics. But the country’s more isolated provinces have really refined their identities, finding ways to stand out against the country’s busier, more internationally known provinces.
This frontier territory is where you’ll find pieces of Australia’s true outback. It's famed for its national parks and Aboriginal history, and fullly embodies a sense of isolation – only one percent of its land is inhabited. Darwin, the North’s capital, is the gateway to amazing landscapes, while the city of Alice Springs is the physical heart of Australia.
The driest state on the driest continent, the South Australian heat can be unforgiving. Yet, vineyards here flourish, as does its art scene and abundant number of festivals. Over half of South Australians live in the state’s capital, Adelaide. The city is the launch point to the famous Kangaroo Island and surrounding wineries.
Australia’s largest state, the west is where the desert meets lush coastline. Its laid-back and youthful capital, Perth, is Australia’s fourth biggest city. Known for its sunshine and endless beaches, the city is gradually pulling more tourists to the west. If you’re seeking an easygoing outback vibe, this state is the place to be.
