100 Things to See in Tropical North Queensland is a guide to the best of the far north and Great Barrier Reef, according to people who live there. This remarkable part of Australia is home to the oldest rainforest on earth, the world's largest living organism and three world heritage sites, and that's just the beginning. In this guide, author and travel journalist Catherine Lawson, along with partner and photographer, David Bristow, take anyone wanting to explore TNQ like a local into the places off the regular tourist trails. Both have spent more than 20 years travelling their backyard by foot, 4WD, train, bike and even in their sailing yacht, Storyteller. Inside, you'll find 100 of the best places and things to see and do at the top of Queensland - from dream-like swimming holes to undisturbed rock-art galleries and outback adventures you'll never forget.

About the author (2020)

Catherine cut her journalistic teeth as a cadet in a regional newsroom, but her love of travel made keeping her itchy feet under a desk pretty challenging. After tackling a Big Lap of Australia, she landed a job as editor of Go Camping Australia magazine so that she could legitimately travel for 'work', and pretty quickly became a digital nomad, editing the magazine on the road and freelancing for some of Australia's best travel and camping magazines. She launched Australia's first outdoor Gear Guide, and after meeting David on an idyllic Thai island, moved to Tropical North Queensland to manage News Corp's Port Douglas Gazette. The author of two Australian travel books, Catherine has spent the last 25 years writing for the likes of Australian Geographic, Wild, Outdoor, Action Asia, Get Lost, WellBeing and ROAM magazine.

David began his career as a television cameraman in Western Australia, filming in the most remote corners of the state. Born in Perth, he spent his youth - camera on shoulder, surfboard in car - travelling the entire west coast until he and Catherine met in Thailand and moved to TNQ. Dave transitioned to stills photography, and now devotes his days to documenting Australia's wild places (and wild creatures) for magazines, books and his own website, wildtravelstory.com.
