New book promises the chance of adventure

Author pens ultimate guide to Aussie experiences

Looking for Christmas present ideas? A new book on Australia’s adventure experiences could be the answer.

Andrew Bain is a Hobart-based writer who is passionate about the outdoors, having walked, cycled and kayaked his way around Australia and large parts of the world over the last 25 years. 

He writes extensively about adventure pursuits for newspapers and magazines and is the author of Lonely Planet’s A Year of Adventures, which was turned into a five-part BBC television series.

His new book is called Ultimate Adventures Australia and will be published by Hardie Grant Explore on November 29 with a RRP of $45.

The book is a guide to more than 60 of the most unique and accessible adventure experiences around the country.

All of the adventures featured are guaranteed to get your blood pumping, but don’t require years of practice. 

You’ll discover memorable wildlife interactions like camel trekking in the Flinders Ranges and swimming with the whale sharks at Ningaloo Reef. 

Also featured are invigorating water-based fun like kayaking in Sydney Harbour and canoeing through Nitmiluk Gorge, sandboarding at Lancelin, heli-mountain biking in Alice Springs and snow camping at Mount Hotham.

A great addition to the bestselling Ultimate series, this book features immersive experiences that will help you discover new places, learn new things and take you outside your comfort zone.
