Book Description

Oct. 7 2003 Fodor's Gold Guides
This is a land so different from any other that it can sometimes seems as if it were conjured rather than created. If you love outdoor recreation, imaginative cuisine, natural beauty seemingly without limit, and the idea of an English-speaking nation actually being exotic, Australia was made (or conjured) for you. Be sure to pack this Fodor's guide before leaving on your journey to the land down under to ensure you don't miss a thing!

The San Francisco Chronicle sums it up best: "Fodor's Gold Guides are saturated with information."

- New two-color interiors make it easier to find the information you need.
- Fodor's Choice ratings tell what not to miss.
- Hotel and restaurant reviews cover all budgets.
- New ¢ sign category flags the best budget options.
- Multi-day itineraries help readers build the right trip for them.
- Smart Travel Tips, a complete chapter packed with contacts and great advice

4.0 out of 5 stars Average travel guide with good information Jan. 24 2004
By Shorty
When researching my honeymoon to Australia, I first borrowed this book from the library. It had a good deal of information and also great website addresses for me to search for more information. Since it became useful, I did purchase a copy which we took with us on our honeymoon.
We went to Sydney and the Great Barrier Reef areas and this book helped us with ideas of things to see and do and more options on lodging. On the planes in between our destinations, we would read what places there were to see and activities to do and then we discussed where we had to go and what we read about that didn't seem interesting to us.
Also, I would refer anyone to fodors.com before they travel anywhere because on their message boards you can ask Australians and past travelers about anything you can think of and not have to search any book. That was truly the most useful planning tool.
All-in-all, not a bad choice as a guide for all of Australia and it gave a good deal of information about where we were going, but for specific city information...get online!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for budget travellers Aug. 13 2004
By A. Dorich - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this book to use as we campervan our way around the East coast of Australia. I usually go with Lonely Planet, but based on some of the review I read, Fodor's seemed a better choice. However, I soon realized this book would be useless to us. It doesn't include any campsites or other budget accommodation, and doesn't have any information on hiking trails etc. I was also very disappointed at the lack of pictures - I wish I'd noticed this before I ordered. This book is on its way back to Amazon and I've ordered the Lonely Planet books - I should have stuck with them in the first place. Fodors would be great for anyone wanting to stay on the beaten path, staying at expensive hotels. For budget travel/back packing/camping, I think LP is the way to go!

Fodor's book on Australia was very helpful during my visit to Australia several years ago. I enjoy reading Fodor and buying their books.
