Across the Continent is an epic 3400km self-drive adventure that travels from Melbourne in Victoria to the Gulf of Carpentaria in Queensland.
Inspired by two of Australia’s most famous explorers, this multi-touch ebook shadows the route of Burke and Wills on roads and tracks that don’t require special permits or permission from private landowners. Along the way it explores some spectacular landscapes, iconic outback towns and the sheer beauty of the Australian countryside. There’s some excellent bush camping to be found, too.
The route can be tackled in sections or as a whole, and while some sections are suited to 4WD vehicles, others are suitable for conventional vehicles. There’s something for everyone with a sense of adventure!
Bonus side trips include Mungo National Park and the ancient formations of the Walls of China, Mutawintji National Park in the rugged Bynguano Ranges and the extraordinary wetlands of Malkumba-Coongie Lakes National Park.
Across the Continent features 137 pages of inspiration and information as well as fascinating video tidbits. Illustrated with more than 250 photographs, this multi-touch ebook will put you in the picture.
This is the second ebook in a series for Modern Day Explorers, designed to inspire travellers to explore where the explorers explored.
