Merge[edit]

This district doesn't make sense, as it bridges multiple states. We have to merge this article into the relevant states and let this one redirect somewhere. Globe-trotter 22:08, 22 December 2009 (EST)

No, the Outback is a region that needs its own article. Especially important are the safety warnings. If you want a precedent for a region bridging several states, look at the various regions of the USA: South_(United_States_of_America), New England, Mid-Atlantic etc. I have changed it back.122.107.15.145 10:10, 3 May 2010 (EDT)
That comparison doesn't quite work—Mid-Atlantic contains states, while Outback cuts across them. That is, it doesn't fit into our Wikitravel:Geographical hierarchy.
That said, as long as we acknowledge that it's an extra-hierarchical region, it shouldn't do any harm. And there is useful travel writing here, so it's not as though someone created a blank region outline that serves no purpose. --Peter Talk 10:28, 3 May 2010 (EDT)
