Cassowary Crossing is not your average tourist guide. It celebrates the curious, it's a guide to things that most tourists miss. Yes, it offers travel tips, but it is also packed with trivia facts, hidden histories, scary stuff and good old-fashioned gossip. There's pop culture, history, crime, science, art and the bizarre and that's just in the first few pages. The book is divided into themed chapters from A to Z and whether your passion in gardening or graffiti, mazes or monsters, films or furniture, there's a chapter with your name on it.
David Astle is an author and journalist. To produce Cassowary Crossing he has travelled for over a year to the farthest reaches of Australia.
