High Way One

This lavishly illustrated coffee table book is their account of that odyssey, the places they visited along the way and the people they met who, like them, were also undertaking this iconic rite of passage. Highway One runs for about 14,500km around the perimeter of this vast continent -further than the drive from London to Beijing. It was once our only major highway and though many stretches have now been superseded by more direct two-lane highways and freeways, the old Highway One still winds its way through small towns and villages well worth a second look or a short sojourn. As you proceed around the continent, you'll witness the amazing diversity of its landforms -from the moist green tropics of Far North Queensland to the dry savannah grasslands of the Northern Territory, and from the arid desert fringes of Western Australia to the tall temperate forests of Tasmania and everything in between. The route takes you across the legendary Nullarbor Plain with Australia's longest stretch of straight road that occasionally doubles as an emergency airstrip and also right through the centre of urban Sydney and under her sparkling harbour. Catherine Lawson's lively writing style and David Bristow's vibrant photographs capture the variety and ultimately the essence of this must-do journey. Along with informative maps and detailed sections on what to see along the way, this book will inspire you to pack up, gun the engine and head off on your own ultimate adventure.
