“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 conditions 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.  These basic facts are interwoven with local folklore, history, anecdotes, and humorous incidents.  The pages are peopled not only with tourists and holiday-makers but with itinerant workers, gem fossickers, and professional wanderers – all part of the diversity of life in Australia’s outposts of civilisation.”
