Australia has a multitude of sights of beauty and interest across its length and breadth. Most travellers seek to enjoy these, but as they are widely scattered what is the most effective way to find them?
Colin McFarlane and his wife have attempted to answer this through their book Travelling Australia by Road. It leads travellers by way of 60 interlinking routes and destinations to reveal secrets hidden around Australia’s regional cities and towns. During a 10-year period, they have covered more than 200,000km and gathered the details for this 260-page, full colour book.

In light of this, we thought it was time you got to know us a little bit better – the 2015 version of BIG4. Here are five things you might not know about BIG4.

There are few days more important to our great nation than Anzac Day. This year marks the centenary of the landing at Gallipoli and it’s a milestone that holds much significance to all Australians.

To honour the sacrifice made by Australian servicemen and women – past and present – we encourage you to attend your nearest Dawn Service or other Anzac Day-related event.
