About the Book

It was their first trip. They joined the exodus north, the long procession of caravans and campers and gleaming Land Cruisers, the tight-packed trailers with dinghies strapped on top, spreading up the coastal highway; part of the ritual urge that took hold in middle life to go around Australia.

PRAISE FOR THE BOOK
‘… a poetic merging of landscape and psyche.’ Australian Book Review

‘Proposes questions about Australian experience and identity at every turn … charts emotional deserts and gorges, waterholes and high places that will have resonances for readers who have tripped in every sense’ The Australian.
