Happy New Year and Wishing you all the best for 2011
Welcome to Travel 'Awesome' Australia Newsletter and a special thanks and welcome to all new subscribers.
Hopefully you will be able to include travelling and exploring Australia and discover a new destination, attraction, or experience in this stunning unique country.
Oprah has come and gone in the last few weeks, lets hope she makes a difference and Australian tourism will get a huge boost next year and beyond.
Below I have listed another Discount Travel Card so you can save money on your holidays, we are exploring the region of Central Australia, I have included another free great travel resource and also a free ebook for you to keep.
I found this 'mud map of Australia' image when I was researching for the other sort of 'mud maps' recently. I researched it a bit more a found a forum debating whether it has been Photoshopped or not! My guess is most likely! (It is actually real!!)
I have since found out that the Aussie 'mud map' is real, a lady saw the photo on this website, she knew the men that had taken the photo so she emailed me and explained what happened. In 2004 a several blokes were driving on Googs Road in South Australia they initially drove over it than one of them said back up for a better look and of course they took a photo.
If the image is not showing use the link below and it will open in a new window. www.travel-australia-planning-guide.com/images/mud-map.jpg

Regions of Australia - The Red Centre
In the last newsletter we explored the Kimberley, we are continuing to explore Australia and have now flown over the border and landed in the Northern Territory to explore and find adventure in the Red Centre of Australia.
The Red Centre or Central Australia is a very unique place to visit, beautiful blue skies (most of the time!), red dirt, sand or rock everywhere and always a bit of greenery. The Red centre is not just about Uluru Ayers Rock (although it is very spectacular), there are many other unique places to visit.
The Red Centre is often harsh and remote but is awesome in the desert like beauty of its endless stretches of red dirt and amazing features that nature has created. Alice Springs is the perfect base to discover and explore the regions culture, heritage and man made and natural attractions.
