“The reality of the great outback as Australia proves even more compelling and full of rich contrasts than its popular mythology. Max Colwell and Peter Finch travelled more than 12000 kilometres through this vast continent in an ordinary two-wheel-drive vehicle, tracing the pattern for the holiday of a lifetime. They gained an appreciation of the country and its pioneering history which they invite the reader to share in an armchair journey to the Top End.
Up The Track offers a wealth of practical knowledge that will enable the motorist to undertake such a journey as comfortably as possible, and with complete awareness of the pitfalls involved. There is invaluable information about the choice and condition of roads and tracks; towns; stations, and local events; landforms and wildlife; places of beauty and significance; as well as facilities available at all points – from roadside cafes to motels, bush pubs, and camping sites.”
