Lonely Planet: Australia

AdvantagesCrammed with useful information. Contains colour maps, Info. on accomodation, activities, getting around etc.

DisadvantagesAdds weight to your backpack.

This edition contains a 16 page colour road map section which I found really useful for getting your bearings. If you are travelling to Oz alone, as I did, you'll find the book provides piece of mind. You know where you going to ..." Read review

Lonely planet -Australia

Advantagespacked full of helful need to know information

Disadvantagesabit bulky to carry around but it does ensure lots of detail!

"...ago. He handed me this lonely planet guide and said it saved his life more than once on his trip, and as i looked at it with torn pages, mud splattered over it and crinkled pages where it got wet sitting under his towel in his backpack, i knew it had been well used and obviously helpful. I do admit the first thing i thought when i flicked through was woah there is alot of information to take in here, but i took it slow and just browsed through it. ..." Read review
