Year of the Outback 2006 will be a special year in that it is the first of the new quadrennial cycle, following on from the success of “2002 Australia’s Year of the Outback” which presented a challenge to Australians of all ages, city and country, to respond to their innate identification with the Outback.
Each of the “Years” will have its own special theme, and “Year of the Outback 2006″ will centre around Australia’s Youth and be known as “Year of the Outback 2006 – Australia’s Youth Infront. ”
