I think just about every program review says "experience of a lifetime" but when it comes to Edge of the Outback, I mean it. The program is more than just photography in the outback, it is also in a way a history or humanities class about the history
of Australia and the Aboriginal people. You begin by learning a little bit about the history and then you dive into the culture and the art of the Aboriginals. It is a rich and heartbreaking history that leads up to the living on the bus in the Outback. This is where the bond you make with the people in your group is made and beyond words. You are with these people 24/7 for a week and get to know everyone. You become a little family and photograph everything on the way. It honestly is an experience of a lifetime worth the long flight around the world.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
