THINK seeing Australia is expensive? Not with a copy of the new book Australia Free in your hands.
Author Mike Koch has always had a passion for four-wheel driving, travelling and exploring Australia. He has run private charters, tagalong and backpacker tours.
"I kept hearing the same story: Australia is expensive to travel," he said. "What is there to see and do that is free?"
And the idea for Australia Free was born.
"We all know Australia has a lot to offer, but who would have thought that so many of its most spectacular and most interesting attractions are free for you to enjoy," Mike said.
The book features 1500 free activities and sights - including waterfalls, swimming holes, museums, zoos, playgrounds, galleries, parks, wildlife encounters and gardens - as well as 1500 free camp sites. Half the content is about making the best use of your time once you get there. Detailed maps and GPS co-ordinates ensure travellers have no trouble finding the attractions.
Available in all good book stores from April, RRP $55 (or pre-order online at Booktopia and save 19 per cent).
