Exploring Outback Australia: Ron Moon
Outback travel expert Ron Moon has seen more of Australia than most. He has spent much of his life exploring and writing about Australia’s remote areas and adventures, including retracing journeys of early European explorers. He fashioned a life based on his love for 4WD touring, camping, bird watching, diving, hunting, canoeing and fishing. He has also ignited that flame for multitudes of people through his writing. This Episode of Talking Australia is hosted by Justin Walker (Editor Australian Geographic Adventure) and produced by Ben Kanthak ( You can also follow us on Instagram @australiangeographic

Road trip: The Kimberley, WA

Talk to any keen road tripper about their bucket-list journeys and “doing the Gibb” will invariably come up. The mighty Gibb River Road transects the even mightier Kimberley region of Western Australia.
