27.12.2010 Australia, Northern Territory, Uluru (Ayers Rock) Spirit, Emotion, Intellect, Task: These are the things that are involved in a SEIT tour of the Outback. The Outback is a singular location, a massive stretch of untamed wilderness that stretches across the center of Australia. Much of Australian civilization is spread along the coasts of the country, with access to trade and shipping lanes. But the Outback is the largest part of the land, and is home to some of the world’s oldest indigenous legends, the customs and ways of the aboriginal people and a diversity of wildlife not to be found anywhere else on earth. Taking a tour with SEIT allows a combination of primal wonder and educational involvement that can rarely be replicated in other offerings, and is worth the addition to an Australia luxury vacation. First there are the group’s iconic tours, focused on visiting the most visible and famous natural structures to be found in the Outback. These tours include such famous landmarks as Uluru, one of the most amazing sights in the world. A huge monolith structure rising from the plains around it, it is a mysterious formation that captivates the mind and the soul alike. It still plays a central role in the culture and spirituality of the local aboriginal people, and aboriginal guides are often quite eager to share stories of it that date back to the mysterious time they call the Dream. Alternatively, there are the cultural tours that SEIT offers as well. Rather than focusing on a specific place, they follow a theme of exploring the local culture and its mysteries. Popular sites include the Hill Caves and the Alice Caves, homes to famous aboriginal cave art that dates back millennia. The Outback is home to many such wonders and a cultural heritage all its own that dates back before the colonies that were first established there. Of course, the tours can also be arranged for private as well as public consumption. If you prefer the true luxury of a tour set up all for yourself and your family, this can easily be arranged as you explore the mysteries of the last great frontier on earth.
