To the Top End

Our trip across Australia

Roland Harvey
NZD $19.99

This fabulous Roland Harvey holiday book explores some of the most spectacular landscapes of Australia. Full of adventure, mishaps, and madcap activity, this is a hilarious, entertaining and delightful companion to At the Beach, In the Bush and In the City.

Henry, Penny, Frankie, Mum and Dad embark on an amazing adventure - from Tassie to the very tip of the Top End. Travel with them on the ferry across Bass Strait to the mainland, through Kelly country, along the Murray, into the Flinders Ranges, underground at Coober Pedy, overhead at the Olgas, overland to the Great Sandy Desert, with the fishes at the Great Barrier Reef, deep into the Daintree, out to the islands, kayaking at Kakadu and finally frolicking on the beach at the very top. Then go back and see if you can find a football in the illustrations on each page. Hours of fun for the whole family.

Author bio:

Roland Harvey is one of Australia's favourite illustrators, loved for his humour and his intriguing, detailed artwork. In 1978, he established Roland Harvey Studios and began designing and producing greeting cards, posters and stationery with a distinctly Australian flavour. Ventures into publishing quickly followed.

Roland's recent books include the bestselling At the Beach, In the Bush and In the City, and Roland Harvey's Big Book of Christmas. His illustrations also feature in My Place in Space (with Robin & Sally Hirst and Joe Levine), and the Bonnie & Sam series featuring the horses and ponies of Currawong Creek, in collaboration with Alison Lester.

Roland was the recipient of the 2005 Dromkeen Medal.
