Join the cult authors of Sh*t Towns of Australia on an unforgettably crap journey through Australia's sh*ttest towns.
Aussies love a road trip. Packing up the ute and slogging for hours or days to get to some town that's only slightly less sh*t than where you came from is just part of living on the sprawling expanse of mediocrity that is Australia.
The Great Aussie Road Trip presents seven epic routes that together take in the most iconic sh*tholes in the country, from Bondi to the black stump and back. From the authors who brought you the ridiculous bestseller Sh*t Towns of Australia, this book covers dozens more crap towns and sh*tty city suburbs, as well as quintessential events, regional foods and other nuggets of knowledge to inform your turdy itinerary.
Whether you're keen for a sh*t trip, a crap lap or a sewer tour, The Great Aussie Road Trip will help ensure you have a terrible time on your travels.
Rick Furphy and Geoff Rissole are two of Australasia's leading self-appointed experts on sociology, travel and culture. After cutting their teeth as investigative reporters for regional newspapers such as the Asbestos Times and the Gawler Growler, Furphy and Rissole released their bestselling debut Sh*t Towns of New Zealand, which won the Poolitzer Prize, the Poobody Award and the Nobel Prize for Shiterature. The pair's work has attracted controversy - including one district mayor suggesting they be shot - but in the spirit of other true Aussie rebels like Ned Kelly, the Eureka diggers and Swino the pig, Rick Furphy and Geoff Rissole refuse to let naysayers deter them from their vital work. Their book Sh*t Towns of Australia was published by A&U in 2019.
