Australia: The Rough Guide by Margo Daly
This handbook on Australia features accounts of every region, from Tasmania to the Tropics, and topics from trekking in the national parks to cafe society in Melbourne. It covers practicalities with recommendations of the best places to stay, eat and drink and it includes information on how to get around. It gives advice on all the activities - whether it is diving on the Great Barrier Reef, driving across the Outback, bungee-jumping or just cruising around Sydney Harbour. Coverage of the essential background, with topics as diverse as local food and wine, the natural environment, aboriginal issues and Australian film, is included.
