We’ve further collaborated with experts to present a robust second edition.
With a focus on conservation work by key organisations like the SSAA we provide a staggering behind the scenes look at the real issues affecting Australia. This includes an in-depth look at the widespread damage caused by feral pests and other factors working against our hard-working Aussie farmers.
We explore south-west WA to walk in the Valley of the Giants, cross the waters of Walpole and drive amid old growth forest and sweeping dunes in Pemberton, along with Western Australia’s Ningaloo to swim with whale sharks and a tag along with gypsies who best know the west. Furthermore we step back in time at Victoria’s curious Werribee Park, go above and beyond at Barrington Tops in New South Wales, discover an oasis in the middle of our nation’s capital, dust off the dirt in South Australia’s Woomera Air-base and head underground in opal-rich Coober Pedy, cruise the Top End’s wet tropics of The Savannah Way, venture drover style along Queensland’s old Georgina Stock Route, indulge in the tastes of Tasmania and take to the sky for a different perspective of our wide brown land.
Along the way we get into metal detecting, birdwatching and photography, provide a guide to a whole new world in the stars above us and delve into eating our nutritious native bush foods and cooking our delicious game.
We also provide tips for Outback survival, review pertinent outdoor products and books, look at Victoria’s Target One Million fishing initiative, the importance of bees, backyard environmentalists, the devastation of bushfires, personal locator beacons, lights on 4WDs, foldaway lightweight bikes, generators, solar power and travelling apps.
