Decent travelling/camping atlas

Hi all

We're starting the planning process for a trip up north next year, and one of the things I want to get my hands on is a decent traveler's atlas that shows some of the things that normal maps and road books don't. Stuff like rest areas, campsites, attractions, services etc, things to watch out for etc. I noticed a spiral-bound "Camping Australia" map book and "atlas" if you want to call it that produced by Explore Australia (part of the UBD mob I think) which seemed pretty good, but I was wondering if there were any others recommended by the esteemed and experienced on this forum? I don't want anything electronic like an e-book because books don't get flat batteries and don't break if you drop them :P

I should clarify we don't need anything like a full on off-road manual because we have a soft roader and won't be going places our car can't go.

Hi RW

WE use the Hema Road and 4WD Atlas available from the online shop here, backed up with single sheet maps of particular areas - and maps running on OziExplorer.

Cheers,

Thanks John and Val, I've just had a gander at it online and it looks like a good unit!

We use the previous edition of that Hema Road and 4WD Atlas mentioned above - but ours is the "Easy Read'' version (400mm x 300mm - spiral bound). Excellent product - the larger format detail is much better for our crumbling eyesight. We also use Camps 6 and the Hema Navigator.
