Hardie Grant Publishing is an independent, Australian-owned publisher, meaning the authors they sign on and the books they publish are inherently relevant to Australian readers. It makes finding a Dad-worthy gift among their titles a lot easier!

Take travel for example. For an adventurous guy whose just itching to get out of the state (soon we hope!), Explore Australia 2022 is a guide book covering 700 regional towns across the country, accompanied by suggested itineraries for when borders finally open! Camping Around Australia and Rewild: Stories and Inspiration for the Modern Adventurer are excellent variations on the same theme, with the former offering a practical handbook for recreational camping and the latter providing serious wanderlust inspo!

If the last 18 months have sparked a desire to visit as much of this incredible country as possible, Bruce Pascoe and Vicky Shukuroglou guide intrepid travellers through 18 significant sites to visit in Loving Country. This guide to sacred Australia is a powerful vision of travel through Indigenous narrative – essential reading! It can be complemented by Culture is Life – a coffee table book by Aboriginal photographer Wayne Quilliam, who has spent a career chronicling the lives and communities of First Nations people in modern Australia.

For those with a culinary-minded Dad, Hardie Grant’s selection of cookbooks is unparalleled. From master fishmonger Josh Niland’s world-renowned wizardry in Take One Fish to Analiese Gregory’s inspiring discovery of slow cooking and foraging in Tasmania’s rugged wilderness in How Wild Things Are – there’s something for every epicurean, even if it’s just good old fashioned pasta recipes from The Pasta Man!

And for an absolute foolproof gift, Behind the Bar guides readers through the signature cocktails of 50 iconic bars and hotels around the world, to combine recipes and travel inspiration in one hit. Finally, for the traditionalists, you can never go wrong with a classic Halliday Wine Companion!
