There is a great range of publications that can be of benefit to the casual and the experienced traveller. Some publications can be specific to a topic that the traveller is interested in such as bird watching or flora for their destination. Others can cover topics such as camping or 4 wheel driving.

Whilst carrying a book can be of enormous benefit, the choice is not necessarily just restricted to the print medium, with DVDs, websites and downloads also out there.

Following are some suggestions for the tourist and traveller. You can often pick up some great publications and media from the local visitor centre, many having a retail outlet and even a cafe attached to them, where you can sit down, relax and read.
