About the Author
Australian Author, Jan Hawkins, was raised in the Australian bush on the outskirts of Sydney on the Georges River. Now residing in Queensland, she spent 20 years in education at secondary level in the IT field. Her love of computers pales in comparison to her love of the Australian bush and she is passionate about the history of her country and a strong desire to discover and experience new places fuels her desire to travel extensively throughout the land. Along the way she relishes being able to listen to people and to share and enjoy the adventure she calls life.

The Coatline from Birisbane to the north is not very interesting unil one goes beyong Rockhapmton, when the coast changes and becomes subtropical with the forest reaching the shoreline. Between the shoreline and the Pacific the Great Barrier Reef is one of the greatest sights on mother earth, visible from the moon! It is a living formation created by corals after millions of years. Though I have not ventured on the Eastern highway beyond Carns, I believe it is a very pretty place and a great favourite of many world leaders including President Clinton, who stayed there on holiday. President Kennedy was shot down during WW2 in the Coral Sea just further up the road.
Cape York is still hardly unexplored and there are still inaccessible areas with no roads and no halfway houses. So carrying your own gear is very important. I dont thnk this book has any real litterary value but it is a useful guide for visitors, who want to visit this part og Queensland.
