Travel Guide

“The year I turned eight, Mum and Dad took us on a trip around Australia. Luke, Billy and I missed school for the whole winter term.”

Imagine the joy and delight of getting to go on the adventure of a lifetime, in a camper van around the varied landscapes, the magical and mysterious landscapes of Australia.
What a fantastic way to travel – to see the country and its wonders through the eyes of an eight year old girl.

The things they do and the things they see such as watching the fireworks over Sydney harbour bridge, a trip to Uluru (Ayer’s Rock) and the general excitement of getting in that camper van and moving on to the next place.

With maps and diary entries detailing the journey, this is a sheer delight from start to finish and a booktrail to beat all booktrails!

At each stop on the way, there’s something to discover – maps to follow just as if you are in that very camper van yourself. You learn as you travel  – let your imagination soar like a child’s and see Australia through Grace’s eyes.

Australia here we come!
