Ken Eastwood, Explore Australia, $49.95

A beautiful book offering a great overview of sustainable travel experiences throughout Australia. In terms of size, it’s more coffee table than stuff-in-your backpack material, so it’s best consulted for holiday inspiration.

A thoughtful introduction discusses the importance of eco-tourism, and author - and former associate editor of Australian Geographic - Ken Eastwood gives his perspective on greenwashing and how he selected which tours, accommodation and activities to include. As well as sections for each state and territory, there’s an additional section about Christmas Island, Norfolk Island, The Cocos (Keeling) Islands and Antarctica. The broad scope of the book necessarily limits the depth of coverage for each destination, but you still get a good sense of what the attractions of the various places are, with information on where to stay, where to eat and what to do, with a focus on low eco-impact outdoor activities. You won’t find prices listed in the book, but websites are, so they’re easy enough to look up.
