Ready to hit the road and the coast - any coast - is in your sights? If so, here's the perfect travelling companion.
Ultimate Coastal Road Trips: Australia is Lee Atkinson's completely new guidebook for the best road trips near water around the country.
The comprehensive guide covers 40 seaside road trips including the Great Ocean Road, Western Australia's Coral Coast, the Grand Pacific Drive and K'Gari (Fraser Island) as well as Flinders and Bruny islands.
There's a wealth of detail for anyone planning a beach holiday, as well as some worthwhile side trips inland.
For each road trip there is a day-by-day itinerary with information on road conditions, what to see and do, rainy-weather options, best time to go and how long it will take.
The information is accompanied by stunning images.
Lee Atkinson is a self-confessed road trip junkie who has been writing about her adventures since 1991.
