Product description


Told with gentle humour and keen observation, not only of the landscape but the people who live there, this book will make readers want to visit Tasmania for themselves, all the while getting to know and like a woman who's unfailing good humour shines through the adventures she encounters.  Elizabeth Kemp - Writers Victoria.

For anyone of any age wishing to experience travelling in Tasmania, this book is a must. Written in an easy-going, humorous style, the reader will discover hidden gems when they travel the Apple Isle with Coral. An inspirational story, told with empathy and unfailing good humour.  Dr. Glenice Whitting - Author and Creatice Writing Tutor.

You have to admire anyone who travels solo. In Coral Waight's 'Edge of the World', you discover the tribulations of going it alone in the wonderland that is Tasmania, whilst feeling you are with the author every step of the way. Coral's marvellous sense of humour makes this a delightful read whether you be 'of an age' or any age. I thoroughly recommend it.  Steve Davies - Author of 'Curtailed Tales' and 'What the?...Cat Dragged In.

I really enjoyed reading this book. Being of a similar age as the author, I could relate to some of her experiences. I found it both interesting and amusing. I would thoroughly recommend it.  Penny Caulfield.

About the Author

Coral Waight started travelling alone at the age of sixty. She began by crossing Bass Strait, south of where she lives in Melbourne, Australia, to explore the island state of Tasmania. After four road trips around the forests, caves and coastlines of her beloved 'Tassie', she ventured further afield, across the Tasman Sea to New Zealand, with its fiords, glaciers, volcanic valleys and its 'Lord of the Rings' trail. With these experiences under her belt, she took the leap to the other side of the world. England provided Dickens, the Brontes and Shakespeare; medieval cities and West End theatres; a malevolent rental car, indecipherable road signs and menacing roundabouts. Her 'Planning to the Nth' series describes the challenges, pitfalls - and joys - of a woman, 'of an age', discovering the world - at last.
