AustraliaBook - 2003
This guide to the vast and varied continent of Australia covers every town, national park, rainforest, marine park, desert and island from Broome to Ballarat and Carnarvon to Cairns. The colour introduction includes 48 Things Not to Miss, a selection of photography showing the country's highlights, from diving the Great Barrier Reef to hot-air ballooning over Uluru. In-depth coverage is given to all the attractions, both the world famous sights and the lesser known local's favourites. There are reviews of the best places to stay, eat and drink, to suit all pockets from student-loans to expense accounts. It also includes an informed background on history, film, aboriginal culture, and Australia's unique flora and fauna. Finally there are over 100 maps and plans for every region and town, all showing the location of recommended accommodation, bars and restaurants.
