The ultimate road trip

Ever dreamed about driving off into the sunset and doing a big lap of the country? Lee Atkinson has just completed an epic 10-month road trip driving 40,000 of the country’s roughest, toughest and dustiest kilometres on a lap of mainland Australia. Featuring hundreds of beautiful images, The Big Lap –is the pictorial diary of her journey with detailed captions telling the stories behind the images.

“We took the road less travelled whenever we could, camping in national parks and other wild places where few other travellers go,” says Lee. “We found some truly amazing places and saw some fantastic things, and this book is the result, a showcase of some of the most scenic spots in Australia.

“But what makes this different from all the other photo books out there is this one also tells you how you can get these out of the way places and has lots of useful planning information,” she says. “The best spots are off the tourist trail, and most aren’t even on the map, but this book will tell you how to get there. So if you want to, you can follow in our tracks – as long as you don’t mind getting off the tourist trail and leaving the crowds behind.”
