            Nature's Way is one of the most glorious tourist drives in Australia - indeed the world - heading from Darwin in the Northern Territory out east to Kakadu National Park, south to Nitmiluk National Park (formerly known as Katherine Gorge) then north back to Darwin via Litchfield N...ational Park. As well as the national parks, the route passes many lesser known but often almost equally sublime places. Louise showcases the journey with beautiful and dramatic photographs, the result of her phenomenal eye for composition and seeming endless patience to capture a scene at just the right moment. No shrinking violet, Louise heads out in all weathers and has captured the region in all its guises, from the still, parched dry season to the often violently stormy early wet season to the rich, exuberantly green late wet season. As well as landscapes, Louise gets to grips with showing us the rhythms and flows of the diverse flora and fauna to be seen along the route, with wonderfully shot images of many of the animals and plants that are part of this incredible landscape.

            The Sydney Hobart Yacht Race is the story of one of the world's greatest sporting challenges. One evening in May 1945, a small group of Sydney sailing enthusiasts decided that their planned post-Christmas cruise south to Hobart would be more enjoyable if they made it a race. And ...so began the story of a contest that quickly became ranked among the world's premier offshore racing events - a race that demands both immense physical and mental endurance of the individual sailor along with the coordinated effort of a close-knit team. It's a challenge where one mistake can lead to defeat, while success can deliver national and international acclaim. In its 75th year, the Sydney Hobart Yacht Race has become an icon of Australia's summer sport, ranking in public interest with such national events as the Melbourne Cup, the Australian Open tennis and the Boxing Day cricket test. No regular annual yachting event in the world attracts such huge media coverage or public interest as does the start on Sydney Harbour. The 628-nautical mile course is often described as the most grueling long ocean race in the world. From the spectacular start in Sydney Harbour, the fleet sails through the Heads, down the south-east coast of mainland Australia, across the notoriously tempestuous Bass Strait, then down the east coast of Tasmania. At Tasman Island the fleet turns right into Storm Bay for the final sail up the Derwent River. The race is an around-the-clock challenge from the harbour to Hobart, and the whims of the winds, waves, tides and currents means that, for each crew, nothing is certain until the finish line is crossed. The Sydney Hobart Yacht Race is the story of one of the world's greatest sporting challenges, an event where men and women from all walks of life are inspired and challenged by the beauty and power of nature.

            The Cave: The Inside Story of the Amazing Thai Cave Rescue

            Twelve boys and one coach; ten kilometres of tunnels; one huge rescue effort. When a team of soccer players from the Wild Boar Academy Football Club - a scrappy club of undocumented migrants and outcasts - became stranded behind rising water in a labyrinthine Thai cave system, th...ey set in train a drama that would captivate the world. Nine days later, still trapped in the dark without food, and with only water leaking through the walls to drink, their survival seemed unlikely. Yet against the odds a team of determined divers traversed floodwaters and narrow cave-ways to locate the boys - alive and hopeful. And so began one of the most daring rescues the world has seen. ABC foreign correspondent Liam Cochrane was on the ground as the dramatic events unfolded. Using his local knowledge and firsthand connections, he puts us at the centre of the story, as we witness the boys' agonising wait, the divers' battle against muddy currents, the race to pump out flooded caves, and the work of the often-quirky international experts who flew in to help. He also reveals un-reported or little-known information about the families; the background politics; the near misses and tragedies; the burn-out; the triumph; and what the future holds for a bunch of children and their coach - whose fun excursion after soccer practice turned suddenly deadly.

            The incredible life of an astonishing athlete - fully updates Dylan Alcott has never let his disability get in the way of what he wanted to achieve. His family treated him no differently to any other kid, and it was the best thing they ever did. Growing up, Dylan always had a pos...itive attitude to life. So when he discovered sport, he'd have a go at anything and could always be found at the centre of the action, giving his best and playing to win. Then he tried wheelchair basketball and tennis and was hooked. Fast forward ten years or so, and the now three-time Paralympic gold medallist, Order of Australia recipient, Grand Slam tennis champion and philanthropist combines elite sport with a love for music (he's a triple j radio announcer and is famous for his crowd surfing). But Dylan's greatest passion is changing the way those with disabilities are perceived, and to inspire young people - whether they have disabilities or are able-bodied - to achieve their dreams. It's a passion that drives him every day of his life. In this fully updated edition of Able, Dylan shares his story. It's the tale of someone who's proud of who he is, who has a go, does everything with heart and soul, who always sees the upside and never takes himself too seriously. As inspiring, honest and funny as its author, Able proves that for every one thing you can't do, there are 10,000 other things that you can.
