I’ve got two ongoing book projects at the moment. Last year Lonely Planet published Epic Rides, a coffee table book covering some of the world’s best bicycle riding. This year they’re working on a follow up – Epic Drives – and I’m contributing a few of my favourites, like driving the Gibb River Road in Australia’s outback Kimberley District or following the route of Sicily’s classic Targa Florio car race.
▲ I’m also working on Australia’s Islands, for the National Library of Australia, a new book on the many fascinating islands around Australia. Did you know there are more than 8000 of them? There’s even Wheeler Island, part of the Family Island group in Far North Queensland and here I am setting foot on the beach of my namesake island.

I flew in to Melbourne from London on Saturday morning and went straight to the studio to talk travel with Catriona Rowntree on Sydney’s 2UE. Click here to listen to me for 10 minutes.
