This guide to Australia offers information from planning a trip, and navigation and driving, to the great outdoors. The single most important factor when travelling in Australia is distance and for each location covered in this guide distances are given to the next nearest important destination. Navigation and driving provides information on how to traverse the continent without hitches and wasting precious time by car, camper van, or four wheel driving. The great outdoors section includes the twenty best great outdoor experiences - suggestions for picnic and BBQ spots; coverage of the sights around the cities and rural Australia; and suggestions for adventure activities. As 2002 is the Year of the Outback the guide offers highlights of the year.

This Scotsman has two major passions in life: wildlife and travel. After gaining a diploma in wildlife illustration and photography in Wales in1986, Darroch took up the position of assistant manager at a wildlife rehabilitation centre in Scotland. This unusual work took him to many far away places, including Saudi Arabia during the Gulf War Eco-disaster in 1991 and eventually to New Zealand, where he emigrated in 1992. There he acted as an oiled wildlife consultant to the government and in 1996 published his first book 'Creatures', an account of his wildlife encounters. Now Darroch has expanded his work to include both travel and nature.
