4WD Australia 50 Short Getaways 2nd edition is the book for you if you enjoy a short break or holiday away from urban centres.  Want to journey into the ‘real’ Australia, or if you’re a more experienced 4WD enthusiast, this book will take you there.

There are many 4WD publications out on the market, but Linda and Steven’s book is a little different. Their focus is on the journey and the destination, so they’ve selected the top 50 tracks around the country that will provide something to do and see for everyone in the family. Completely redesigned and updated for this second edition, the book is broken into regional chapters, so no matter which state or territory you live in or are visiting, you can find an easy or more challenging 4WD tour to suit. For every 4WD trail there is information on planning your trip, highlights, options to make your journey longer or shorter, hospitals and clinics, and route notes with waypoints. A wealth of colour photographs completes the package, giving you an excellent reference tool for planning your next 4WD adventure.
