Footprint Australia Handbook Summary

Footprint Australia Handbook by Darroch Donald

This guide to Australia offers information from planning a trip, and navigation and driving, to the great outdoors. The single most important factor when travelling in Australia is distance and for each location covered in this guide distances are given to the next nearest important destination. Navigation and driving provides information on how to traverse the continent without hitches and wasting precious time by car, camper van, or four-wheel driving. The great outdoors section includes the 20 best great outdoor experiences - suggestions for picnic and BBQ spots; coverage of the sights around the cities and rural Australia; and suggestions for adventure activities. As 2002 is the Year of the Outback the guide offers highlights of the year.
