Hot off the press is one of the most comprehensive Australian travel guides you could find. The Australian Adventure Atlas has everything you need to know to help you plan an adventure-packed holiday  in Australia.

Author Lee Atkinson is one of Australia's leading experts on travelling in Australia. Author of On the Road: 40 Great Driving Holidays, she is the former editor of the country's highest circulating motoring and travel magazine, The Open Road. Lee has been writing about her adventures on and off the road since 1991.  She is the past president of the Australian Society of Travel Writers, and when not travelling on assignment, divides her time between Sydney and the NSW  mid-north coast.

The book is divided into forty comprehensive chapters, each with detailed maps and beautiful photographs, covering every region across the
country in depth. There's information on the best national-parks in the area, where to camp, the best bushwalks, scenic highlights and attractions and adventure tours. There is also information on local weather conditions
and where to find more information.

This hefty volume is packed full of helpful information on responsible travel and safety, with specialist chapters written by  leading experts in their field. Whale watching, fishing, bird watching, skiing, diving and snorkeling as well as Australia's unique (and sometimes dangerous) wildlife are also dealt with.

Of course with Lee Atkinson's motoring background the book also includes a guide to driving around the country with handy driving tips and vehicle preparation know-how, along with gourmet-getaways for food and wine lovers and an inspirational list of Australia's top 100 things to see and do.

The Australian Adventure Atlas, by Lee Atkinson, New Holland Publishers, March 2007, rrp $59.95.
