Welcome to OzyRoadTripper, the Australian road trip information site from the author of Explore Australia's Driving Holidays Around Australia, On The Road, Caravanning Australia, The Australian Adventure Atlas and Australia's Best National Parks.

I've just completed an epic 10-month road trip driving 40,000 of the country's roughest, toughest and dustiest kilometres on a lap of mainland Australia. Towing a camper trailer with a 4WD ute, our road trip took us across some of the country's most iconic landscapes and destinations and into places where few other travellers roam.

Featuring hundreds of beautiful images, The Big Lap is the pictorial diary of my journey. It's a lavish book of 144 full-colour pages, with detailed captions giving the stories behind the images. But this is not just another photobook, even though it is an inspirational showcase of some of the most scenic – and remote – roads and places around Australia. What makes this book different to the rest is that it's full of helpful information to help you plan your own Big Lap. The best spots are off the tourist trail, and most aren't even on the map, but this book will tell you how to get there. On sale now: $35 (inc postage in Australia). A PDF version is also available for $15.

In the meantime, if you're planning an Australian road trip or driving holiday you'll find plenty of suggestions on where to go right here. For maps, point-to-point itineraries, details on what to see and do along the way, where to eat and special places to stay check out my latest book, Driving Holidays Around Australia. With detailed information on 40 great driving routes it will turn your next drive into a road trip to remember.
