Now in its fifth edition, Explore Australia by Caravan and Motorhome is better than ever!

This caravanning bible now includes an additional 400 caravan park listings, bringing the total list to over 1000 for caravan parks from around the country.

For every listing, there are new symbols to highlight if a park is dog-friendly, if there is a dump point available and if the park is a member of a major caravan organisation (BIG4, Top Tourist Parks, Family Parks and OZ Parks).

As well as these fantastic new features, all of the information has been rechecked and updated, so that the authors John and Jan Tait can share their unrivalled knowledge of how best to see Australia by caravan.

The touring section at the front outlines suggested itineraries with new mapping which includes the caravan parks from the directory marked with easy-to-locate numbers.

The directory still highlights John and Jan's favourite caravan parks - those with stunning waterfront sites, pancakes every Sunday or boat ramps for fishing might score a mention as 'Author's Choice' parks.

In a paperback for easy in-car reference, this is the ultimate guidebook for the free-spirited traveller.

got the book for a present --Terrible book to follow. Hasn't got all the caravan parks--I think they did deals to put those one in--not much mention to free camping spots. Many things wrong with the book --we tried very hard to keep going with it but gave up --it ended as a support book----the book would be of use if you just followed the main highways --------not sure what to do with the book on the next trip----the bin looks the best at this stage---the taits have put a lot of time in but its all over the place. sorry for these comments

        Ideal book for caravanning and campervanners. Covers most of the main highways. Colourful and easy to follow. Great combined with the various free state holiday park magazines. Already cannot wait until our next trip!

            Nice looking book and easy to follow, our relatives loved the book as they are caravanning around Australia for 3 months and found it much better than the one they had already bought.
            More Info. & good maps

              This book is the kind of book in which you simply take with you and follow.
              It has everything you need to know for travelling around Australia in a caravan/van.
