Join digital editor of Traveller.com.au Craig Platt to celebrate the launch of Tim Richards’s new book, Heading South.

Tim Richards is a freelance travel writer whose work has appeared in publications around the world, including Lonely Planet’s guidebooks. He fell into travel writing after living and teaching in Egypt and Poland, and is especially drawn to the former communist countries of Central and Eastern Europe. He’s a light packing obsessive, and loves chasing down a story with a historical angle. Heading South sees Tim travel by train from far north Queensland to down south in Western Australia, with many stops along the way.

This event is free to attend but bookings are essential.
