In Ultimate Campsites: Australia, Penny Watson maps out 75 of the country's most wild and wondrous nature-based campgrounds, from the turquoise and white sandy beaches of Queensland and pristine national parks of New South Wales, to the wineries of South Australia and the wilderness areas of Tasmania.

Ever pitched a tent within a stone's throw of a picturesque waterfall? Ever woken up in a sleeping bag to the gentle sound of waves? Ever seen the sun go down in the desert or fallen asleep in an ancient rainforest? Well, now's the time to tick off these experiences on your camping bucketlist!

Each state-by-state chapter in Ultimate Campsites: Australia contains detailed maps and the what-when-why-where information about each campground, alongside tips and anecdotes about the surrounding regions. You'll find special sections dedicated to remote-island campgrounds, as well as sites with great walks and places close by to Indigenous cultural experiences. There are also quick and easy lists for camping with pets, free camping, 4WD access and commercial campgrounds, and handy camping trail itineraries for when you want to tick off two or three campgrounds in one trip.

This book is an essential tool for the glovebox, be it in a 2WD or a motorhome. It's also the kind of book that will get plenty of wear and tear on the coffee table while you're planning that next big adventure in Australia's great outdoors.
