    Australian Geographic, in Association with Woodslane Press is delighted to introduce a new series of photographic souvenir guides to some of Australia’s most beautiful and iconic places. The 64-page large format books will be full of vibrant photography, accompanied by a concise but fascinating commentary by some of Australia’s most experienced travel writers. One of the first two books in the series, the Australian Geographic Book of the Red Centre is an indispensable reminder and souvenir for both international and Australian visitors to this very special place. Armchair travellers and children will pick it up time and again to whet their appetites and perhaps to plan their own visits.

    Includes sections on geography, wildlife and culture, Alice Springs, the MacDonnell ranges, the Devil’s Marbles, Hermannsberg and Palm Valley, the Red Centre Way, Watarrka (King’s Canyon), Uluru (Ayers Rock) and Kata Tjuta, and Rainbow Valley.

    Katrina O’Brien is the author of Australia’s bestselling walking guide, Sydney’s Best Harbour & Coastal Walks. She first fell in love with the Red Centre and the Kimberley while travelling and writing her way around Australia for two years as the co-author of the travel guides Footprint Australia Handbook and Footprint West Coast Handbook. When not researching and writing walking and travel guides Katrina is a book publishing consultant and has previously worked as Managing Editor for Murdoch Books and Penguin.
