The term Outback defines any part of Australia 'out back' from the larger cities that reside on Australia's coasts, typified as arid or semi-arid, open land, often undeveloped.

Scientists believe that the 'outback red' is the result of high levels of iron-oxidizing in the soil. The soil in the Red Centre is millions of years old.
