Roland Harvey's hilarious illustrated family holiday books all rolled into one hugely entertaining adventure.
We did a squillion and seventy things on our SIX holidays all across Australia: sailing and surfing, caving and kayaking, camping under big skies, explorations underground, museums and markets, amazing adventures on our way to the very tip of the Top End and way out west, and finally a heap of fun helping Uncle Kev on his farm.
So join us! Come along to everywhere we ever went, and see everything we ever saw! And enjoy all the madness and mayhem of our fabulous family holidays.
Includes all six holiday books: At the Beach, In the Bush, In the City, To the Top End, All the Way to W.A and On the Farm.

Some of his best-loved books include My Place in Space (with Joe Levine, Sally Hirst and Robin Hirst), Burke and Wills, The First Fleet, Sick As (with Gael Jennings) and Roland Harvey's Big Book of Christmas. His recent books include The Wombats Go on Camp and, of course, his bestselling family holiday adventure series - At the Beach, In the Bush, In the City, To the Top End, All the Way to W.A. and On the Farm. Roland's brilliant illustrations also feature in the Bonnie and Sam series - The Horses and Ponies of Currawong Creek, in collaboration with Alison Lester.
