Australia's Highway One is a part of the life experience for most Australians. It's our great coastal highway, tracing out our coastline. Very many of us live on or near it and travel on some part of it every day. Pacific Highway, Princes Highway, Bruce Highway, A1, M1; it goes by these and many other names. It reaches into and through and links every State. At over 14,500 kilometres in length it's the world's longest national highway and to drive it is truly one of the world's great road trip adventures.

Highway One grew out of a highly variable collection of local, regional and State roads. Over time, the growing need for a rational system for the construction and maintenance of efficient and safe arterial highways across State borders led to increasing Federal Government involvement. Highway One was born in 1955 out of this already-existing network of State roads and became National Route 1 in the then-new National Route system.

Like pearls on a necklace, the length of Highway One is studded with pretty and uniquely Australian small towns, but huge sections of the old road have been bypassed and nearly forgotten over the decades. Nearly forgotten... but not quite. Old Highway One still lives on and we can revisit the old places of yesteryear.

With their unique "red route" navigation system, these books have been tailored to the needs of "grey nomads", backpackers, caravanning and camping enthusiasts, motoring clubs, tourists, holidaymakers and any other travellers looking to do more than simply get from A to B around Australia.

Packed with custom maps, enticing sketches, key travel tips, charming anecdotes from the road and rich detailed information, they're the must have guide books for all the visitor, traveller and tourist highlights this world class road trip exploration has to offer. From holiday planning to driving this classic road, there's nothing else like "The Highway One Travel Companion" available.

What Others are Saying about The Highway One Travel Companion

David Taylor has stripped back the complexity and confusion of many of the large motoring directories on the market. And he's removed the impersonal nature of driving via GPS - which doesn't allow for getting lost and making unexpected discoveries of your own.

The Highway One Travel Companion Volume 1: Melbourne to Tweed Heads is a no-nonsense guide for the enthusiastic road tripper. Simple colour-keyed maps and driving instructions guide you through with minimum complication.

Thank you for a great read! You don't need a car to experience this trip: it's more like a Bedside Companion. Congratulations on a superb effort and good luck with the next edition.
