An off-road adventure story

In this four-wheel drive adventure across the North Island Chris Morton and Tony Bridge, two of the country's top outdoor photographers, and their friends, take a trip through some of the North Island's most spectacular landscapes. The drive took over two weeks and covered around 4000 kilometres.

Beginning in the urban sprawl of Auckland, they drove to the winterless beauty of the Far North, before travelling down the west coast and past the astonishing gold sand dunes above Hokianga Harbour. Across swollen rivers and rolling fields, through the challenges of the New Zealand terrain and weather, this was a North Island journey very few get to experience.

This is a book that will appeal to everyone who dreams of going off-road - as well as the armchair travellers along for the ride - and everyone who wants to know what lies beyond the end of the road. Out There North: A 4WD Adventure in New Zealand's North Island by Chris Morton and Tony Bridge is is available to purchase from bookstores nationwide for $49.99, and online from
