4WD Tracks of the High Country will lead the reader through twenty of the best four-wheel drive touring destinations in the Victorian and New South Wales High Country. Packed with features, including the regions history, natural features and highlights, making this guide is an indispensable travelling companion for those setting out to explore one of this countrys most unique areas. Comprehensive route notes will keep you on track from start to finish where you can visit old gold mining towns tucked away in secluded valleys, take in breathtaking vistas atop some of the regions highest peaks or throw down your swag beside a gurgling mountain stream.

Craig Lewis and Cathy Savage both travel to write and write to travel. As full-time authors and photographers they have been continually wandering throughout Australias backblocks to photograph and gather material for upcoming titles. Most years will see them camping out for 100 or so nights, often bunking down in secluded bush campsites, far from the maddening crowds. This is by far their favourite style of camping.
