Sydney Rock Pools

Sydney Rock Pools

Ignacio Palacios

$39.99

Double Reward Points
More info


Sydney's coastline and harbor has a series of beautiful rock pools that have been cut into the base of cliffs and rocky headlands.

Nearly every Sydney beach has one ocean pool which is usually located at  the southern end, to give swimmers some protection when the southerly  winds bring cold air and big seas. Some were built by wealthy people in  the 1800s, others by convicts. They come in all sizes and shapes and  each one has its own colourful history and interesting anecdotes.

Ignacio's passion for both swimming and photography was the catalyst for this project.

On the Trail of Genghis Khan: An Epic Journey Through the Land of the Nomads

On the Trail of Genghis Khan: An Epic Journey Through the Land of the Nomads

Tim Cope

$19.99

The relationship between man and horse on the Eurasian steppe gave rise to a succession of rich nomadic cultures. Among them were the Mongols of the thirteenth century - a small tribe, which, under the charismatic leadership of Genghis Khan, created the largest contiguous land empire in history. 

Inspired by the extraordinary life nomads still lead today, Tim Cope embarked on a journey that hadn't been successfully completed since those times: to travel on horseback across the entire length of the Eurasian steppe, from Karakorum, the ancient capital of Mongolia, through Kazakhstan, Russia, Crimea and the Ukraine to the Danube River in Hungary.

From horse-riding novice to travelling three years and 10,000 kilometres on horseback, accompanied by his dog Tigon, Tim learnt to fend off wolves and would -be horse-thieves, and grapple with the extremes of the steppe as he crossed sub-zero plateaux, the scorching deserts of Kazakhstan and the high-mountain passes of the Carpathians.

Along the way, he was taken in by people who taught him the traditional ways and told him their recent history: Stalin's push for industrialisation brought calamity to the steepe and forced collectivism that in Kazakhstan alone led to the loss of several million livestock and the starvation of more than a million nomads.

Today Cope bears witness to how the traditional ways hang precariously in the balance in the post-Soviet world.
Visiting the Neighbours: Australians in Asia

Visiting the Neighbours: Australians in Asia

Agnieszka Sobocinska

$34.99

A timely and provocative book that shows us that the Asian Century isn't as new as we think it is. A million Australians went to Bali last year, following the millions of others who have made their way across Asia over the past century. Many travellers returned thinking they knew Asia - and their personal experiences helped shape popular attitudes. This absorbing book unpacks their experiences, showing how their encounters changed the way Australians thought about Asia.
Tibet, the Last Cry

Tibet, the Last Cry

Eric Meyer ,  Laurent Zylberman

$37.99

Eric Meyer and Laurent Zylberman were the only freelance journalists allowed into Tibet after the 2008 riots which left parts of Lhasa in ruins. They saw the friction between two cultures: police and soldiers patrol the towns, while crowds of Han immigrants pour into the region like new frontier settlers seeking their fortunes. Tibet is going through drastic economic change, shaking up ancient ways of life and altering the fragile ecological balance of the once-nomadic high plateau. China is massively investing to turn Tibet into a modern country. Downtown shops crammed with made-in-China fashion are run by battalions of saleswomen in uniform, and night-clubs draw crowds of Tibetan teenagers in search of Western music. A series of black-and-white photographs intertwine -- often in a single shot -- the clashes between two very different communities who have never fully understood each other. Narrated day by day, both text and images immerse the reader in an eye-opening journey across the roof of the world.

Bali Heaven and Hell: Bloodshed, Chaos and Corruption, Free Love, Great Surf and High Times Under the Banyan Trees, Was 50 Years of Exploitation, Corruption, Chaos, Free Love, Great Surf and High Times Under the Banyan Trees

Phil Jarratt

$29.95

Phil Jarrett draws upon first-hand experience and extensive research to provide a lively and entertaining narrative of the social, cultural and political history of an island paradise close to Australians' hearts.

Heaven and Hell details the mythology and spirituality of Bali as well as the island's tumultuous and often violent past. Extensive interviews with expats and residents from the 70's in Bali deliver to readers a unique first-hand view of the dramatic changes and effects that modern development and western colonisation have had over the past 50 years, as well as enchanting us with their memories and stories.

A popular destination for Australians, in particular, Bali represents many different things - for numerous young people it is their first destination overseas, for some it is a spiritual destination, others visit for a beach holiday, and still more come for profitable business opportunities. 

Heaven and Hell is a story of survival in the face of genocide, natural disaster, terrorism, cultural imperialism and corruption on a grand scale, and of how Bali has managed to present the same smiling face to generations of tourists, despite the enormous price its people have had to pay for inhabiting the glorious island at the morning of the world.
North Korea Undercover

North Korea Undercover

John Sweeney

$19.99

North Korea is like no other tyranny on earth. It is Orwell's 1984 made reality. The regime controls the flow of information to its citizens, pouring relentless propaganda through omnipresent loud speakers. Free speech is an illusion: one word out of line and the gulag awaits. State spies are everywhere, ready to punish disloyalty and the slightest sign of discontent. You must bow to Kim Il Sung, the Eternal Leader and to his son, Generalissimo Kim Jong Il. Worship the dead and then hail the living, the Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un. North Koreans are told their home is the greatest nation on earth. Big Brother is always watching. Posing as a university professor, award-winning BBC journalist John Sweeney travelled undercover to gain unprecedented access to the world's most secret state. Drawing on his own experiences and his extensive interviews with defectors and other key witnesses, North Korea Undercover pulls back the curtain, providing a rare insight into life there today, examining the country's troubled history and addressing important questions about its uncertain future. Sweeney's highly engaging, authoritative account illuminates the dark side of the Hermit Kingdom and challenges the West's perception of this paranoid nationalist state.
The Birth of Korean Cool: How One Nation is Conquering the World Through Pop Culture

The Birth of Korean Cool: How One Nation is Conquering the World Through Pop Culture

Euny Hong

$29.99

How did a really unhip country suddenly become cool?

How could a nation that once banned miniskirts, long hair on men and rock 'n' roll come to mass produce pop music and a K-pop star that would break the world record for the most YouTube hits?

Who would have predicted that a South Korean company that used to sell fish and fruit (Samsung) would one day give Apple a run for its money?

And just how does South Korea plan to use pop culture to beat America at its own game?

Welcome to South Korea: The Brand.

By now, even your nanna knows the hit song "Gangnam Style" and Psy, the song's quirky singer. But the song’s international popularity is no passing fad - as part of K-pop it is only one tool in South Korea’s extraordinarily elaborate and effective strategy to become a major world superpower by first becoming the world’s number one pop culture exporter.

As a child, Euny Hong moved from America to the Gangnam neighbourhood in Seoul. She was a witness to the most accelerated part of South Korea’s economic development, during which time it leapfrogged from third-world military dictatorship to first-world liberal democracy on the cutting edge of global technology.

Euny Hong recounts how South Korea vaulted itself into the twenty-first century, becoming a global leader in business, technology, education, and pop culture. Featuring lively, in-depth reporting and numerous interviews with Koreans working in all areas of government and society, The Birth of Korean Cool reveals how a really uncool country became cool, and how a nation that once banned miniskirts, long hair on men, and rock ‘n’ roll could come to mass produce boy bands, soap operas, and the world's most important smartphone.
An Illustrated History of Thailand

An Illustrated History of Thailand

John Hoskin

$69.99

This fully illustrated history is divided geographically according to the  sequence of succeeding Thai kingdoms. Each section follows a historical chronology, covering accounts of major events during each reign, with an assessment of the character of individual kings and their particular achievements, together with those of other major players.

This record of events is blended with descriptive passages about monuments surviving today that are relevant to and help illuminate the history. Political development is thus paralleled by Thailand’s cultural development, especially in relation to the religious and royal architecture.

Thailand’s historical progression has been complex, and although the foundations of national identity – religion and monarchy in particular – were established in the earliest days of statehood dating back to the 13th century, it is only in comparatively recent times that all elements – social, political, cultural and linguistic –have cohered into what is recognizable today as Thai and Thailand.

By linking the text to existing landmarks the history provides both an enjoyable read in its own right and a fascinating guide to the monuments and buildings that visitors can see on their travels around the country.

Outback Stations: Life on the Land by the People Who Live There

Outback Stations: Life on the Land by the People Who Live There

Daniel McIntosh

$39.99

A pictorial celebration of Australia as seen through the eyes of people working on the land. In March 2013, Dan McIntosh had an idea. A station cook and keen photographer, he wanted to share the pictures he had taken of the outback life he loved so much. Encouraged by his sister, he started a community Facebook page called Station Photos. Dan wasn't expecting much but within days the bush telegraph kicked in and pretty soon thousands of people were liking and contributing their own photos to the page. A year on, Station Photos has almost 50,000 followers and a staggering 30 million views from around the world. What people love so much about Station Photos is that it's real. Real people taking photos on their phones and cameras of what makes them laugh (and cry), the land they love, their kids, their mates and their animals. It's a way of life that most Australians - living in the cities and along the coast - never get to experience, yet it embodies so much of the spirit and folklore of Australia. Outback Stations was born from a competition on the Station Photos page to show a day in the life of an outback station. The response was positively overwhelming - and the very best of the images are featured in this book. Like the Facebook page, this book is a celebration of country Australia and the way we live and enjoy life on the land.
Route of Santiago de Compostela

Route of Santiago de Compostela

Alberto Douglas Scotti

$39.99

For many people the Compostela pilgrimage is an event that marks their very existence: something that lays down a "before" and an "after". Along the walk it is possible to meet fellow travellers whose memory will accompany us for the rest of our lives. Or else we might meet ourselves. 

The book is presented as a practical guide for those who wish to undertake what has been one of the busiest pilgrimages from the Middle Ages up to the present day. Following the traditional "French Way", on foot or by bicycle, this guide will accompany the traveller from both the practical and spiritual point of view. 

Pocket-sized and easy to consult, it allows step-by-step route planning in both directions: it contains all the practical tips needed to make the most of this unforgettable experience. 

Each stage is accompanied by a detailed map, technical indications, a description of the sites and historic and artistic details about the different areas the Way passes through. Specifically it includes distances, altimetry, places to rest and sleep, alternative routes and places to visit, for a journey that includes cultural and natural elements. 

The various stages are also accompanied by phrases and points for reflection that help to complete a journey that is not merely geographic. A special space – the pilgrim's notebook – is provided for pilgrims' own thoughts and impressions, in such a way that it might become a unique personal guide, "one's own" guide to the Way of St. James, a book to treasure and remember.
Camino De Santiago: The Ancient Way of Saint James Pilgrimage Route from the French Pyrenees to Santiago De Compostela

Camino De Santiago: The Ancient Way of Saint James Pilgrimage Route from the French Pyrenees to Santiago De Compostela

Sergi Ramis

$24.99

The first one-volume walking guide in English to the most popular long-distance route in Europe walked by British tourists. With the advent of low-cost airlines it is as cheap for the British tourist to go to mainland Europe as to the extremities of the UK - which is why in recent years continental long-distance routes have become increasingly popular with the British walker. Most popular by far is El Camino de Santiago de Compostela, the ancient Christian pilgrimage route that has been travelled for over a thousand years to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, where, legend has it, the bones of St James are buried. This guide follows the most popular route, starting at St Jean-Pied-de-Port in south-west France and heading all the way westwards across northern Spain for 800km to finish at Cape Finisterre on the Atlantic coast. Now, extending its series of Trail Guides beyond the UK for the first time, Aurum publishes the first compact one-volume guide to the path, fully illustrated with photography, it offers comprehensive route directions, sectional route maps, gradient profiles, a history of the route and details of sights to see and separate chapter guides to the main cities along the way like Pamplona, and a list of accommodation en route.
One River: Explorations and Discoveries in the Amazon Rain Forest

One River: Explorations and Discoveries in the Amazon Rain Forest

Wade Davis

$24.99

From the author of Into The Silence, winner of the Samuel Johnson Prize for Non-Fiction. In 1941, Richard Evans Schultes took a leave of absence from Harvard University and disappeared into the Northern Amazon of Colombia. The world's leading authority on the hallucinogens and medicinal plants of the region, he returned after twelve years of travelling through South America in a dug-out canoe, mapping uncharted rivers, living among local tribes and documenting the knowledge of shamans. Thirty years later, his student Wade Davis landed in Bogota to follow in his mentor's footsteps - so creating an epic tale of undaunted adventure, a compelling work of natural history and a testament to the spirit of scientific exploration.
The Temporary Bride: A Memoir of Love and Food in Iran

The Temporary Bride: A Memoir of Love and Food in Iran

Jennifer Klinec

$32.99

A relationship was a mathematical formula: the correct variables of age, beauty, morality and finances were entered and the output was a successful, peaceful marriage. It couldn't be, therefore, that their Iranian son could feel desire for someone six years his senior, someone who didn't come to him pure and untouched. I was an amusing visitor from another world and soon enough I should return to it, fading quietly into an anecdote ...In her thirties, Jennifer Klinec abandons a corporate job to launch a cooking school from her London flat. Raised in Canada to Hungarian-Croatian parents, she has already travelled to countries most people are fearful of, in search of ancient recipes. Her quest leads her to Iran where, hair discreetly covered and eyes modest, she is introduced to a local woman who will teach her the secrets of the Persian kitchen. Vahid, her son, is suspicious of the strange foreigner who turns up in his mother's kitchen; he is unused to seeing an independent woman. But a compelling attraction pulls them together and then pits them against harsh Iranian laws and customs. Getting under the skin of one of the most complex and fascinating nations on earth, The Temporary Bride is a soaring story of being loved, being fed, and the struggle to belong.
The Gringo Trail: A Darkly Comic Road Trip Through South America

The Gringo Trail: A Darkly Comic Road Trip Through South America

Mark Mann

$24.99

'...there I was in the middle of Bogota, coked up to my eyeballs, in a hallway holding two machetes, while some drunk Colombians argued about whether or not to blow up a bar with a live hand grenade...' Asia has the hippie trail. South America has the gringo trail. Mark Mann and his girlfriend Melissa set off to explore the ancient monuments, mountains and rainforests of South America. But for their friend Mark, South America meant only one thing: drugs. Sad, funny and shocking, The Gringo Trail is an On the Road for the Lonely Planet generation - a darkly comic road-trip and a revealing journey through South America's turbulent history. Drama and discovery. Culture and cocaine. Fact is stranger than fiction.
The Road Headed West: A Cycling Adventure Through North America

The Road Headed West: A Cycling Adventure Through North America

Leon McCarron

$24.99

It seemed a terrible shame to meet my end in Iowa; I couldn't imagine anywhere more disappointing to die. If I were a betting man I'd have reckoned on the most dangerous thing in this state being sheer boredom. The scenery hadn't changed for weeks and I was slowly dissolving into stimulation-deprived madness. My current predicament, then - attempting to escape through cornfields from a gun-toting alcohol-soaked rancher - was not something I expected. Just months after graduating from university, Leon received disastrous news: he had been offered a job. Terrified at the prospect of a life spent behind a desk, without challenge or adventure, he took off to cross America on an overloaded bicycle packed with everything but common sense. Over five months and 6,000 miles, Leon cycled from New York to Seattle and then on to the Mexican border, facing tornados, swollen river crossings and one hungry black bear along the way. But he also met kind strangers who offered their food, wisdom, hospitality and even the occasional local history lesson, and learned what happens when you take a chance and follow the scent of adventure.
Running Away from Home: Finding a New Life in Paris, London and Beyond

Running Away from Home: Finding a New Life in Paris, London and Beyond

Jane De Teliga

$39.99

Jane de Teliga had it all - a glamorous and fulfilling career as style director for Australia's best-loved magazine, a happy family life and a beautiful home in Sydney's stunning eastern suburbs. But when empty nest syndrome struck, she suddenly found herself wondering what it all meant. Who was she when she wasn't being defined by her career and motherhood? To find out, she did what many people long to do - sold the house, left her job and went to try her luck in Paris. Along the way she discovered meditation, yoga and the inescapable truth of the Buddhist saying: 'Everywhere you go, there you are'. From her beginnings in the art world to her current work teaching and inspiring the next generation of fashion stylists, Jane has led a rich and varied life. This memoir, beautifully illustrated with photographs from Jane's life in fashion and her travels, is the story of one woman's journey from the heady world of fashion to a simpler and happier existence - the story of a woman taking a step into the unknown and finding herself in the process.
The Thing About Prague

The Thing About Prague

Rachael Weiss

$29.99

I'd like to say that my decision to move to Prague permanently was based on something grand and noble - a desire to trace my roots, a sense of adventure, my literary heart yearning to burst into flower in the sweet soil of Old Europe - but I can't. The truth is that I had nothing better to do. When Rachael Weiss left a good job, Thelma the cat and a normal life in Sydney for the romantic dream of being a writer in Prague she intended to stay forever. She lasted just three years, exasperated by the eccentricities of her ancestral city and the mind-boggling bureaucracy and customs of a country that values beer and potatoes above everything else. In this surprising and generous memoir full of warmth and unstoppable sociability, Rachael attempts to write her great novel, buy an apartment (any apartment!), dodge unscrupulous employers, and perhaps find love. She gets lost in the woods with a Kyrgyzstani software engineer who wants to eat humans, finds herself leading services at the Spanish synagogue with no real idea of what she was doing and spends long nights drinking beer with a colourful cast of crazy, warm and slightly mad locals and expats. Rich in absurdities and gentle humour, The Thing About Prague is rife with insight, culture clashes, friendships and, above all, charm.
Against a Peacock Sky: Two Years in the Life of a Nepalese Village

Against a Peacock Sky: Two Years in the Life of a Nepalese Village

Monica Connell

$27.99

For two years Monica Connell lived as a paying guest of Kalchu and Chola in the Nepalese Himalayan village of Talphi, ten days walk from the nearest road. This book poetically captures the immediacy of Connell's experience, and her empathy and sense of wonder at the dramas of village life - a boar hunt in winter, the wedding of a young neighbour and the magic of the full-moon festival when the gods descend to dance amongst the villagers.
Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires

Jason Wilson

$36.99

Whether for tango, football or art, passions in Buenos Aires run high. The largest city in Argentina, it is chaotic and lively, dangerous and cosmopolitan, and presents seemingly unlimited attractions for tourists. This book provides a view into the city today, and into its past. Europeans colonized Buenos Aires in the 16th century, and from this modest start it had boomed by the end of the nineteenth century. Its history is one of excesses and swings between authoritarian and democratic governments. By examining Buenos Aires' past, we can appreciate what remains as story, urban myth, or reality. Jason Wilson explores the history behind the monuments, buildings, and people of the city. Essays on present-day Buenos Aires - its parks, cemeteries, museums and bookshops - reveal what makes the city tick, while listings provide handy references for the traveler. Buenos Aires, one of the first titles in the innovative 'CityScopes' series, is an authoritative introduction and intimate guide to the past and present of a vibrant, fascinating city.
The Cevennes Journal: Notes on a Journey Through the French Highlands

The Cevennes Journal: Notes on a Journey Through the French Highlands

Robert Louis Stevenson

$29.99

For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move . (RLS). In September 1878, Robert Louis Stevenson travelled by donkey through the Cevennes region of France. For personal memory - and, as it happens, for literary posterity - the young Stevenson recorded copious notes on his journey as he travelled. Some of these witty and incisive impressions were subsequently published in Travels With A Donkey. The remainder, however, didn't find its way into print until the first publication of The Cevennes Journal in 1978, one hundred years later. This travelogue, which also includes several of Stevenson's previously unpublished sketches of the region, provides both a unique socio-historical document and an important piece of literature.
The Crossing of Antarctica: Original Photographs from the Epic Journey That Fulfilled Shackleton's Dream

The Crossing of Antarctica: Original Photographs from the Epic Journey That Fulfilled Shackleton's Dream

George Lowe ,  Huw Lewis-Jones ,  Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Bt OBE

$49.99

The first crossing of Antarctica in 1957/58 by the Trans-Antarctic Expedition, led by Sir Vivian 'Bunny' Fuchs, was one of the twentieth century's great triumphs of exploration. Sir Ernest Shackleton famously attempted to cross the great white continent during his ill-fated Endurance voyage, and now, one hundred years after he set out, this beautifully illustrated volume celebrates the men who succeeded where he had failed and rewrote the history books. With exclusive access to the spectacular images and private archives of key member George Lowe, photographer and Everest veteran, and items from the Fuchs family collection, there has never been a book on Antarctica quite like this. An outstanding team of explorers and polar experts also provide their reflections and tributes, contributing to a remarkable visual and personal testimony of this historic event.

John Muir ,  Robert Macfarlane

$22.99

His journals describe the summer he spent in what would become Yosemite National Park. Celebrating the Sierra's lizards and mountain lions, tall trees and waterfalls, fierce thunderstorms and bears, Muir raises an awareness of nature to a spiritual dimension. John Muir is internationally acknowledged as one of the founding fathers of modern conservation and his vision, passion and integrity continue to inspire readers today - particularly in this, his best-loved book.
The Scorpion Fish

The Scorpion Fish

Nicholas Bouvier

$27.99

The narrator arrives in his 117th rented room at the end of an epic journey, abandoned by his lover, almost broke and certainly feverish. His obsession with the insects he shares the room with and his beautifully articulated observations of himself on the edge of a physical and mental collapse extend out to include the insect-like habitues of the local cafe - the charlatans, the indolent landowners and even a levitating priest who has been dead for six years. This razor-sharp chronicle of experience, which grew out of Bouvier's seven-month stay on the island of Ceylon, shows that if you travel, you must be prepared to discover not only delights but also the worst as well.

Walk into the Dark Ages: Discover the Greatest Early Medieval Sites of Britain and Ireland

Walk into the Dark Ages: Discover the Greatest Early Medieval Sites of Britain and Ireland

Bill Bevan

$59.99

Following the acclaimed Walk Into Prehistory, Walk Into the Dark Ages explores approximately 40 of Britain and Ireland's most important and impressive Dark Ages sites and monuments, providing a beautifully illustrated guidebook for the armchair traveller. It was during the Dark Ages that the four nations of the British Isles were founded. Saints were deified, kings were buried in rich burials and kingdoms protected themselves with massive boundaries. Walk Into the Dark Ages will shine a light into the period by enabling readers to explore the important sites which are testament to times which were turbulent and sometimes enigmatic, but also the locations of learning. The types of sites featured will include the Saxon shore forts built by the Romans to try to protect Britannia from Anglo-Saxon invasions, kingly boat burials, long-distance dykes, fortified burghs, Dark Age forts, early Christian monasteries, churches and carved crosses. Presented as individual walks, the routes will lead the reader back in time from the modern landscape to reconstruct in the mind's eye what the Dark Ages landscape would have looked like - and how these often quite places today would have been full of activity, noises and smells in the past.
At My French Table

At My French Table

Jane Webster

$39.99

After years of thinking about it, Jane Webster finally bought a dilapidated chateau in France. She and her husband had decided they didn't want to die wondering what it would be like to live in the country they both loved so much, so they sold their house in Melbourne, took their four young children out of school and moved the whole family to a tiny village in Normandy. This is the magical story of their first year in France: with a new language to learn, new friends to make, and a whole new region - from Deauville to Rouen - to discover. It is also the story of Chateau de Bosgouet and how Jane lovingly brought this grand but neglected old house back to life. At My French Table is an ode to a beautiful country and the French way of life.
