Favourite destination in Australia: “The Australian Outback must be my favourite place. You can lose and find yourself in the Outback, a place rich in Aboriginal history and rugged, natural beauty! This is what Australia is about and you won’t find it anywhere else in the world! I love the Northern Territory and Kimberley/WA, with iconic outback landscapes and undiscovered secrets. One of my most memorable experiences was a trip to Mt Borradaile in Arnhemland with Davidson’s Arnhemland Safaris. Mt. Borradaile is a registered aboriginal sacred site and a landscape of rugged ranges fringed by idyllic billabongs and rainforests, a beautiful wilderness. The enormity of the legacy of Aboriginal culture – its complexity and spiritual depth – is barely understood by most of us and you will get a great insight into this.”
