A guide to Australia's unsung travel spots, by acclaimed photographer Nick Rains.
Australia is famous throughout the world as a land of great natural beauty and stunning scenery. Places like Uluru, the Great Barrier Reef, the Twelve Apostles, Kakadu and Daintree - to name but a few - are justifiably celebrated. But you miss much if you stick to the highways and the 'tourist highlights'. Indeed, you'll find many hidden gems by following your nose and taking the roads less travelled.
This is what Australia's Hidden Places is all about: it's not a catalogue of travel hotspots, but a personal guide by photographer Nick Rains to a host of less familiar but no less spectacular locations. To get to the places introduced in this book, you don't need a convoy of four-wheel-drive vehicles or a team of sherpas. Some of the locations are in fact quite close to mainstream destinations and can be found by simply travelling a bit further or allowing yourself more time. Let Australia's Hidden Places show you the way.
