Australia's national parks, forests and reserves are world-famous treasures, but comprehensive and up-to-date information on them is often difficult to obtain. It's no fun turning up to a campsite after a long day in the car to find you can't have that hot shower you were looking forward to. Or travelling to a distant campsite to get away from the crowds, only to find it's the most popular spot around over Easter.
Keren Flavell has camped and tramped extensively in Australia in over 200 different national parks. In this book she tells you everything you need to know about:
- park location and access
- campsites, facilities, costs
- special walks and features
- local wildlife
- events to plan your holiday around
- contact addresses and phone numbers
Written with holiday planning in mind, and illustrated with more than 120 park and state maps, this book is your essential guide for preparing your trip and just right for slipping in your daypack when you're away.
