Drive down a road in Australia and you might discover one of the best surfing beaches in the world, a meteorite crater, a fibreglass trout, an ancient rainforest, a rock art painting from one of the oldest cultures on Earth, or a local with a lot of stories to share. Whatever adventure you're looking for, Explore Australia has everything you need to plan your next holiday on this diverse and surprising island continent.
Published every year since 1980, Explore Australia is the most comprehensive guide to Australia's regions and towns. It's designed for people travelling Australia by car, and is organised by states, which are then split up into cities, regions and towns, each detailing what you should see in the area. The guide also reveals interesting armchair travel facts, like famous bushranger hideouts, where you can still fossick for gold, how towns were discovered by Europeans explorers, as well as information on Australia's first peoples.
Explore Australia (35th edition) has had a thorough revamp, giving it a personality overhaul – to make it more engaging and inviting, to appeal to both a younger and more diverse group of travellers, along with the already converted. The book draws on the nostalgic appeal of the road trip and harks back to the very best in the earlier editions, both in design and content.
This latest edition taps in to travel being an adventure – its aim being to inspire travellers to hit the road to see all that is awe-inspiring, fun, exhilarating, even quirky, about travelling in Australia.
The new design of the internal pages is fresh and inviting, with a focus on ease of use – information is provided in a friendly and engaging way that is clear and accessible.
We’ve made the book’s contents a bit more of a curated journey, focusing largely on getting out of the city and hitting the country and outback roads.
