Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0864173059, Paperback)The sense of open space in northern Australia is overpowering. The vastness inspires and commands respect. A visitor has to think again about distance and isolation. What is it like in that apparent void? This book is the answer to that question: a personal guide to the north based on the author's route from Townsville on the north Queensland coast to Broome in the far north of Western Australia, with a detour up to Darwin and Kakadu National Park. Little has been written about the natural beauty of the land between the more popular stopping point. This is a guide to help you get the most from your hours on the road as well as appreciating your destination whether you make the whole crossing or only part of it.
The travelling is not arduous although distances are greet: up to two and three hundred kilometres between settlements, across vast expanses of grassland or woodland. You need only a spirit of adventure and a liking for the bush for an unforgettable experience.
