Books inspired by Australia

Our hand-picked selection of books to get you in the mood for your Australia holiday

Tracks

Robyn Davidson

Follows Davidson's epic and perilous 17,000 mile journey across the Australian outback with only her dog and four camels, in search of peace, solitude and self-discovery. Willing to see and experience things others weren't prepared to back in the 1970s, it's an eye-opening and uplifting read that you'll be thinking about for ages afterwards.

Big Little Lies

Liane Moriarty

A gripping whodunit and "whydunit" which leaves you guessing until the very end. Fast-paced and perceptively detailed, this bestselling novel is a real page-turner. It's also been made into a great tv series, although the setting for that was changed from Australia to California.

Down Under

Bill Bryson

A humorous and informative depiction of Australia by the much-loved travel writer and historian. This is a must-read joy for anyone thinking of going or with an interest in country.

The Slap

Christos Tsiolkas

A man slaps a disruptive child who's not his own one afternoon at a barbecue in the suburbs of Melbourne. This eye-opening novel follows the ensuing fall-out from the split-second decision and leaves the reader questioning their own moral stance, which will continually change throughout the book.

Backpacking Australia: The ultimate guide

My first ever big solo trip was to Australia when I was 21. I visited Lagos Portugal for a vacation with my friend and while I was there I met lots of Aussies who told me I should pay a visit to the Land Down Under. Since I’d just left university and wasn’t sure what to do with my life, I thought that didn’t seem like a bad idea, so I did some bartending and saved up enough money to spend 6 weeks backpacking Australia. ...

10 things to do in the Northern Territory on my bucket list

The Northern Territory of Australia, one of the eight states in Australia and also known as the NT is an incredible part of the country! Although this area is VERY empty in places, it’s also FULL of wildlife, national parks, beaches and dramatic (very red!) scenery. During my 2-year working holiday visa in Australia, I spent 1-month living and working in Darwin which is the capital of Australia’s Northern Territory, and I returned the following year to Alice Springs to do a 3 day Red Centre...
