In October On The Road Melanie Ball puts her hiking boots on to show us a different side of Queensland’s Fraser Island where it’s particularly peaceful and remote from the crowds. We’ll also begin a caravanning adventure that starts with an on-line auction site and ends, well, we’ll have to wait for that. But it’s a story that offers lots of advice on buying second hand, as well as on travelling from one side of the continent to the other. And we’ll have our regular spread of wonderful places to camp, tasty ideas for camp-side meals, fishing, and lots more. On sale 14 September.
