Not all who wander are lost.

Western Australia is an extraordinary place, home to many extraordinary writers.

Through the Love to Read Local literary map of WA we invite you to journey with us and be inspired by the many wonderful stories and books that have been written about this place.

This is a site for readers who love to travel on their own terms.
Follow in the footsteps of the writers you love. Create your own trails by exploring the locations and settings of favorite books and use this site to connect those books to information about travel, accommodation and other resources you’ll need to plan your journey.

This is also a site for travelers who would like to connect more deeply to the landscapes, towns and regions they visit.
Use this site to find books that will connect you to those places and enhance your understanding and experiences of the state’s communities, cultures, ecologies and histories through their pages.

When you’re planning your next holiday in Western Australia let our writers be your guides!

“Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home.”  Anna Quindlen

The creation of this site has been enabled with funding provided by Lotterywest.

Our thanks also to Tourism Western Australia for providing access to its image library.
