Tuross Head has a new author


Noel Smart, using Pegasus Publishers in London, has produced his first book 'Of Roads and Rainbows'. The book’s foreword is by another Tuross local; the Hon Dr Ken Crispin QC.

Noel and his Wife Jean, now experienced caravanners, spent almost two years and drove 27,500kms while circumnavigating Australia on the first of their many long drives.

The Pegasus press release quotes among other things; that only Australia ranks as both one of the world's oldest and youngest countries. It adds that 'Of Roads and Rainbows' is an excellent introduction to the country for lovers of surprises.

Copies are available from Tuross Head Post Office and Tuross Head Newsagency in the lead up to the official launch on October 13th. Copies can also be arranged via noelandjean@gmail.com or online via Pegasus


Of Roads and Rainbows is a treat for lovers of Australia and an excellent introduction to the country for lovers of surprises.

Think again if you thought you knew how exotic Australian wildlife can be, or how beautiful and unique its natural wonders and natural history could be.

Only Australia ranks as both one of the world's oldest and youngest countries.

Nowhere else offers the rich combination of a unique and ancient natural history that came to be revealed to the wider world through its colonial history, woven of human and humorous stories that are every bit as curious and quizzical.

When retirement beckoned, Noel and Jean Smart packed their Jeep and drove off to explore their homeland. Two years and twenty-seven thousand kilometres later, Noel is ready to share their discoveries and describe those natural wonders and wildlife, and always through the unique colour, culture and comedy provided by Australia's colonial history.
