Inside Tracks Robyn Davidson's Solo Journey Across the Outback


Inside Tracks is the retelling of Robyn Davidson’s journey from Alice Springs to the Indian Ocean, seen through the eyes of world renowned photographer, Rick Smolan, and now reimagined in the major motion picture, Tracks. In the late 1970s Robyn Davidson undertook an epic adventure - to travel solo across the Australian outback from Alice Springs to the Indian Ocean, armed only with a few camels and her dog for company. Rick Smolan, a National Geographic photographer at the time, was employed to document Robyn’s journey, by accompanying her along sections of her route, the result of which formed a long-lasting relationship between the two and a visually stunning account of one woman’s dream of solitude, captured against the backdrop of the Australian outback. Inside Tracks is an ode to the Australian outback and Robyn’s groundbreaking journey - a stunning coffee table book and reflection on our landscape in one. This unique story has now been turned into a major feature film featuring Mia Wasikowska and Adam Driver as the protagonists.

Inside Tracks documents Robyn and photographer Rick Smolan’s story and how her journey has resonated around the world. Featuring excerpts from the screenplay along with stills from the movie that show how closely the film mirrors the reality of the story, Inside Tracks is a must-have for lovers of Robyn’s original book and the film alike. In addition, this book accompanies a unique photo recognition app’ that plays scenes from the movie when placed over particular images in the book - a wonderful bonus for movie and tech’ fans.
