‘Outback’ (Noun); The remote and usually uninhabited inland districts of Australia. ‘Pub’ (Noun); An establishment for the sale of beer and other drinks, and sometimes food, to be consumed on the premises. According to the Oxford dictionary, the description of establishments we were about to pay homage to sounded spot on. An Outback Pub Crawl, visiting remote watering holes scattered across some of Australia’s eastern semi-arid zones.
Why had we decided to pay homage to the above? Well for some time now, and across many collective trips, we had been developing a deep level of respect for these premises. Whether it be a flying visit with the family, a boy’s trip or one of our many office trips, our talk would often turn fondly to the memories we had won (and sometimes lost) in our visits. Soon we began to discuss and respect these places though for what they all had in common, a feeling of safe refuge and more importantly true Aussie grit.
It’s time for a truly Australian Outback Pub Crawl.
