Welcome everyone and a special thanks to all new subscribers.
Travelling Australia is an exciting adventure, holiday or road trip. When we are driving on Australia's roads we are always have an atlas or maps to show us the way.
Atlases, maps and travel Australia books come in all shapes and sizes and most of them have a different purpose.
Maps and atlases can cover all of Australia, a region, a city or a section like the West coast, East coast, the Outback or Top End.
Travel Australia books can vary from being a general 'about Australia' book in a small easy to carry format to the large, colourful showpiece for your bookshelf or coffee table.
They can also vary in subjects like, camping, bush cooking, accommodation, 4 wheel driving, attractions, touring, dog friendly campsites, cycling trails and walking tracks etc.
Below I have listed a few travel Australia books that I own and I am very impressed with their quality and usefullness when planning and travelling.
Happy travelling everyone.
Below I have included a new road trip, free travel tips, we continue travelling Australia and several travel Australia book suggestions.

Road Trip - Summerland Way
The 'Summerland way' road trip is a self drive tour from Coffs Harbour to Brisbane in Queensland. This route is a inland tour that is an alternative to driving on the Pacific Highway and is much more scenic.
This trip includes destinations and attractions like the Grafton, Casino, Kyogle, Woodenbong, Rathdowney, Beaudesert, to Brisbane with plenty of other smaller towns to visit along the way.

Travel Australia Books
I recommend both these travel Australia books as I have purchased them both and found them to be excellent. Clicking on the link for each will show you the publishers description and the numbers of pages etc. They both have been recently published in 2011 so they are the latest editions.
'Explore Australia by Caravan and Motorhome' is an excellent map travel guide. Each main Highway is described in sections including Highway One that goes all the way around Australia - sixty sections.
The other highways described are those that are in an east-west direction and north-south direction and all of Tasmania is included in a separate section. The book has an excellent layout and is very impressive, very easy to understand and use.
Explore Australia by Caravan and Motorhome
Budget Camps and Stops Australia is another interesting travel book, it includes over 1000 rest areas, park areas and camping areas on the main highways of Australia.
Each listing includes an image and further information about the area so it makes it much easier to plan your days travels when you know where you can stop for a short break or overnight.
