Australians have always loved a good road trip, whether it’s a leisurely Sunday drive through wineries or to a beach near a major city, a quick weekend getaway into the mountains or roughing it on a remote outback track. And hitting the road is a great way to spend our holiday time with family and friends. In Ultimate Road Trips: Australia, author Lee Atkinson highlights 40 of the best driving holidays around the country. Each chapter includes information on things to see and do, detailed route maps and a handy list of distances to help you plan your trip, as well as lots of useful advice on family-friendly attractions, where to eat and the best hotels, guesthouses, caravan parks and camping spots. You’ll also find details on the best time of year to visit, driving tips and a guide to surviving a road trip with a back seat full of kids. Keep this book in the car for when you’re out on the road, or curl up with it at home and dream about your next journey.
