How the Two of You Can Be Outback Jack and Jill

For television viewers who follow Outback Jack, the reality show which takes pampered women and puts them in pursuit of a man in the middle of Australia's rugged Outback, the Outback looks like a rough and rugged destination. It is -- but, for many couples, it's also an adventure trip waiting to happen.

If you'd like to plan a romantic getaway to the Outback (and you're not worried about breaking a nail), here are a few leads to get you started:

Outback Oasis on lovetripper.com

by Eleanor S. Morris Even before Crocodile Dundee, just about everyone had heard of the Australian outback. And what a wild, adventurous place it is, what with kangaroos and wallabies, brilliant birds and platypuses, aborigine caves and deepset gorges.Although much of the outback consists of dry plains dotted with sparse vegetation, in the center of Queensland you'll find a dense green oasis, thick with lush plants and alive with an exotic assortment of birds and animals: Carnarvon Gorge, one of Australia's most magnificent parks.
