$29.95

The High Country 4WD and Camping Guide by Craig Lewis and Cathy Savage is one of the best books for the Australian High country, which comprises both the Victorian and New South Wales Alpine Areas.

Twenty of the best 4WD tours exploring the Victoriana and New South Wales High Country are described in this terrific guide book. Each tour has an introductory chapter describing things to do and see, access, track standard, distance, closest fuel supplies, highlights, permits & restrictions, important contact numbers and recommended maps and guides. Then follows a detailed track note section with kilometre readings, GPS references and important navigational information. Track notes can be followed in both directions.

The text is enhanced by well-drawn and accurate maps of the tour showing places of interest and camping areas.

The opening chapters of the book include detailed background notes on the European discovery and subsequent development of The High Country as well as some notes on the earlier Aboriginal occupation. The closing chapter is a comprehensive camping guide listing all designated campsites with facility symbols and essential information.
