Blue Peaks 
& Red Ridges

By popular demand we have put Blue Peaks and Red Ridges back on the e-shelves. This book is proving popular with those that are looking to find that little something extra on their CSR trip. With daily field notes of desert exploration by Peter Muir during the mid 1960's, this book can be used to trace his explorations and locate his campsite blazes. Many amazing locations that are otherwise unknown are also identified in this book so this 16mth diary is more than just an armchair read!
A unique resource for only $36.30

These playing cards are beautiful to use and each card has a different colour photo of the mysterious Pilbara region in Western Australia in the centre of the playing face. Places like Karijini, 80 Mile Beach, Montebello Islands, Marble Bar, Milstream, and Tom Price. The back of each card is also a Pilbara scene (shown here). Each pack comes in a sturdy plastic storage case. Good value for just $7.95

Identification References: One of the wonderful things about travelling in Australia's outback is that you get an unique opportunity to observe species of wildlife that most people will rarely, if ever get to see. We've hand-picked these books for travellers of the outback and highly recommend that you add these titles to your packing list for the big trip.
