From iconic destinations to hidden gems: Explore Australia in 2024

In partnership with Hardie Grant Publishing

Many Australians are loading up the car or caravan, and adventuring to the great outdoors like never before. Whether it’s a long weekend away, or a month travelling from one town to the next, we’re out exploring all of Australia’s natural and cultural wonders.

So, what’s the best way to plan your next adventure? With Australia’s longest-running and most-trusted travel guide, of course!

Explore Australia 2024 is the 40th edition of Australia’s essential travel guide, and the perfect companion for road trips, weekends away, or caravanning holidays. It’s the perfect guide to stow it in the glovebox for easy reference while exploring the great outdoors.

With detailed maps, top attractions, day trip ideas, and more – you can feel confident that you have the must-sees covered. Capture even more unique natural and cultural experiences with recommendations from waterfalls and bushwalks, to museums and wineries (you may even find your new favourite bottle!).

One of our favourite places from the book to explore is the world’s largest and possibly oldest collection of around 5000 rock art pieces in the UNESCO World Heritage site of Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory. Travel like a local with tips like when to visit, how to acquire a national park pass, and not-to-be-missed attractions including art galleries, a billabong cruise and, of course, crocodile spotting.

If you’re exploring Western Australia, you can visit the powder-white beaches, turquoise waters and friendly quokkas on Rottnest Island/Wadjemup (or ‘Rotto’ as it’s known to locals), only 2.5 hours from Perth CBD. There are also Traditional Owners and First Nations cultural experiences, sacred sites, and place names to be discovered.

It’s time to plan your next adventure, and then get out on the road! Explore Australia 2024 is available now at a bookstore near you, published by Hardie Grant Explore.
